National leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) “is horrified by the armed attack on the convoy of the Emir of Kano, His Royal Highness, Alhaji Ado Bayero on Friday,” according to a statement released by the party’s spokesman.

Rotimi Fashakin (Engr), National Publicity Secretary of CPC, said that the one-time military ruler “has expressed sympathy on the loss of lives therein.”

According to Buhari in the statement entitled Emir of Kano: An intolerable level of insecurity, “The portent of this latest security challenge is: the Nigerian state is not just under an ominous cloud of insecurity but all the citizens (under the nation space) are also victims. This is indeed one attack too many!

“Let it be stated that insecurity of lives and property in any clime is a measure of its level of development. This aptly explains why the nation’s constitution, in section 14, places security and welfare of the people on the government.

“As citizens, we look forward to the time that this cloud of insecurity shall be lifted and all Nigerians (of whatever religious persuasion and ethnic extraction) shall be free to pursue happiness and living anywhere under the nation-space in tranquil setting.”
