The All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its House of Assembly primaries, scheduled for Monday, Dec. 1st across the nation, by one day as a mark of respect for those who were killed in Friday’s terrorist attack on a mosque in Kano, and in sympathy with those who were injured or affected one way or the other by the senseless attack.
In a statement in Lagos,Sunday, by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the House of Assembly primaries will now hold on Tuesday, Dec. 2nd 2014
”All the dates for other primaries remain unchanged,” it said.
APC described the attack as a monumental national tragedy, saying the party cannot be oblivious to the plight of the victims of the absolutely condemnable and totally incomprehensible attack on defenseless citizens in such a hallowed place as a mosque.
In an earlier statement, the party had condemned, in the strongest terms possible, the attack on the innocent worshipers and vowed that terrorism will never prevail no matter how long it takes.
It also urged all citizens to demonstrate the Nigerian spirit of compassion and strength of character by providing succor and support to one another.
