By Ehis Agbon .Abuja, Nigeria.
The chairman of Nigeria’s ruling Peoples Democratic Party PDP USA chapter, Chief Olufemi Sanyaolu, commiserates with the families of the 53 students killed by Boko Haram terrorist group in North East Nigeria state of Yobe.
The condolence was part of comments he made at a parley he had with media men in his residence in New York at the weekend. He said it was callous, barbaric and unacceptable for anybody to take the life of another person, more so little children, in whatever guise.
Chief Sanyaolu said “it is the height of heartlessness for anybody to kill innocent children in their sleep”. He wondered if these terrorists ever considered that the students they recklessly kill really do not have a say in the circumstances surrounding their being in school. “These children killed by Boko Haram insurgents are in school because their parents want them to be in school. If you (Boko Haram) are not heartless cowards why are you targeting little children that have not done anything to you? These children represents the future of our country, do you (Boko Haram) think that you can bully them into submission. Their innocent blood is on your (Boko Haram) hands and I implore you to ask for forgiveness and tow the path of peace”
While declaring his support for the new National Chairman of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Alh Adamu Muazu, Chief Sanyaolu said “the emergence of Alhaji Muazu as our National Chairman is a proof that our great party, the PDP, can and will always be the party to beat”, stressing that “Muazu has the unique leadership qualities of a peacemaker and bridge builder with a passion for unifying the party for the progress and development of Nigeria”.
The chairman of PDP USA said President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan should speedily make his intention for 2015 known. Chief Sanyaolu stated that “We are eagerly waiting for the formal declaration by the president to contest in the 2015 presidential election because we have seen what transformation our motherland Nigeria has undergone under his administration and we want him to complete it in his next term”. Sanyaolu declared that his chapter in the USA will give all the necessary support to President Jonathan at all levels to ensure that he emerges the president come 2015.
In conclusion the PDP chieftain advised all defected members to retrace their steps back to the PDP as there was no other party that will give them a level playing field like the PDP. Sanyaolu reiterated that “in the PDP we are all involved in decision making while in the other parties Godfathers make all the decisions”.
