The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 elections, Atiku Abubakar, has expressed concerns over the incidents of terrorism resurfacing in the North East.

He also condemned the bomb attacks, which resulted in the loss of lives and the maiming of other citizens in the Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State.

Online reported that deadly bomb attacks killed at least 18 persons and maimed many others on Saturday in Tashan Mararaba, Gwoza town, Borno State.

In a statement on Sunday issued via his X handle, Atiku said the suicide attacks in Borno are sad and condemnable, stressing that ugly incidents are worrisome.

The former Vice President said the achievements recorded in the fight against insurgency are being cancelled by the Tinubu government due to its lacklustre posture towards fighting terrorists.

He wrote, “It is a sad development that the ugly incidents of terrorism are resurfacing and, indeed, metastasising in the North-East.

“The reported attack by suicide bombers at a wedding reception, funeral procession, and a hospital on Saturday stands condemned.

“It is unfortunate that much of the pushback that had been achieved against the Boko Haram terror sect is being cancelled, owing mainly to the government’s lacklustre posture to hold firmly on the frontline.”

Atiku, therefore, asked the federal government to ensure that the North East does not slide back into the hands of terrorists and become the theatre of extreme violence.

He added, “It is thus important to call on the federal authorities to wake up to their responsibility and to make sure that the North-East does not slide back into a theatre of terrorism and extreme violence.

“My condolences go to the families of victims of these attacks, and it is my prayer that God grants a peaceful repose to the souls of the departed.”
