Nigeria Is Bleeding, Says Tinubu

A former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, said on Tuesday that Nigeria is bleeding as a result of the spate of killings across the country.

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress urged all and sundry to join hands in the fight against banditry in the land.

This is as Governor Nasir el-Rufai said that Nigeria is at a crossroads and needed to make a difficult decision to pick a leader, come 2023 that would take Nigeria out of its sundry challenges.

Tinubu, who was in Kaduna on a condolence visit over the terror attack on a Kaduna bound train from Abuja, which occurred on Monday, March 28, donated N50 million to assist the state government to rehabilitate and care for the victims.

The APC national leader said, “We are facing the current challenges seriously and we have to do more. Nigeria bleeds on behalf of everybody.

“We need to fight terrorism with all our energy and whatever we have. It’s not shameful for people to be poor, but it’s unacceptable to accept poverty as a norm.

“It’s shameful to be callous, wicked and be a bully or terror to instil fear in humanity and it’s not acceptable.

“I’m here on a condolence visit to Kaduna to sympathise with the Governor and people of Kaduna and entire Nigeria. What happened to the people on the Abuja to Kaduna train on Monday for all of us.”

In his response, el-Rufai commended Tinubu for cancelling his 70th-anniversary colloquium as a mark of honour for the victims of the attack.
