Abuja bomb blasts: Atiku alerts Nigerians to alleged plot to frame up opponents

Former vice president and presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has alerted Nigerians to President Goodluck Jonathan’s alleged heightening desperation of making his political rivals the scapegoats of the latest bombing incidents in Jos and Abuja.

A statement in Abuja by his Campaign Organisation in Abuja yesterday accused the president of inciting the public against them through the administration’s paid agents to link Atiku’s recent comments to the latest bomb blasts.
According to the statement, newspaper adverts by the president’s agents were already making insinuations of Atiku’s alleged connection with the violent incidents.

While condemning violence in any form, however, the former vice president observed that President Jonathan was taking advantage of national grief to hang the responsibility for the terrorist incidents on the necks of main political rivals such as Atiku.

“It is unhelpful neither to the security agencies nor for national security for President Jonathan to jump the gun of investigations and seek to make political gains out of an uncomfortable incident that have caused grief to many Nigerians,” the stated added.

The statement declared that any president who exploits the bomb incidents to incite public hatred against his opponents with the purpose of framing them up was as guilty as the yet-to-be identified bombers. “In a moment of national crisis, President Goodluck Jonathan must demonstrate sobriety and cool-headed posture rather than losing his head to impetuous emotions.“The President should allow security agents to carry out intensive investigations instead of using the incident to frame up political opponents whom he perceives as stumbling blocks to his ambition. The President’s tacit approval of linking his opponents to the bombs is dangerous politics. The President cannot surpass Atiku’s commitment to national security. Such wicked insinuations, if not stopped, can complicate the efforts to identify the bombers,” the statement maintained. According to the statement, bomb blasts are a national tragedy and every concerned Nigerian, including those in government, have a responsibility to apprehend the wicked and ungodly. – Sun
