President Buhari Condoles With Egypt Over Mosque Attack
President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday commiserated with the government and people of Egypt on the North Sinai mosque attack that left many dead.
President Buhari in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, condemned the “dastardly act” on innocent worshipers.
He said that his position that terrorism has no relationship or respect for any religion, and should be visited with the full wrath of the law has been further buttressed by this attack.
The statement read in part, “The President reiterates that the workable panacea to such mindless and irresponsible attacks on citizens would be a global joint action that continually shares intelligence, simulates scenarios and regularly updates on both local and international threats.
“President Buhari prays that the almighty God will receive the souls of the departed, and comfort the families of those directly affected.”
