Presidency Denies Blaming North Over Bombings

THE Presidency, yesterday denied allegations by Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) that President  Jonathan blamed the North for the spate of bombings across the country. The ACF had on Friday accused the President of linking the North with the series of bomb blasts across the country.                 

Presidential Spokesman, Ima Niboro, said in Abuja that President Jonathan never at any time linked the North with the spate of bombings across the country. According to him, “This is a grand design by Arab News Network, Al Jazera Television to cause chaos in the country.   Prominent Northern leaders have joined the President in condemning the attacks and there is no evidence linking the north with the bombings.

“For anybody to say that the president is linking the north with these heinous crimes is unfortunate. We understand that Al Jazeera is doing the bidding of certain elements in the society, but they should keep Mr. President out this their dirty politics. The president is committed to seeing that those responsible for these criminal acts brought to book”.         

“We appeal to Nigerians and the international community to disregard this claim as this does not represent the position of Mr. President. Mr. President has received the support of prominent northern leaders during these very trying times, so for anybody to begin to accuse President Jonathan of linking the north with the bombings is unfortunate, sad and, a calculated attempt to discredit the President in the eyes of the North.”
