Presidency reacts to Kuje Prison Attack, defends Buhari’s trip to Senegal
The Nigerian Presidency responded to the terrorist attack on the Kuje Prisons by asserting that President Muhammadu Buhari will not be stopped from carrying out his official duties for the nation by the terrorists’ actions.
This statement was made by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in response to the suggestion that the President should cancel his trip to Dakar, Senegal, yesterday in order to attend the International Development Association (IDA) for Africa Summit, which is scheduled to take place on Thursday.
Adesina, who moderated the briefing by ministers during the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday, said:
The president ought to travel to Senegal in order to attend an international conference intended for presidents and heads of state. Never succumb to terrorist pressure.
When terrorists start preventing you from doing things, we might as well give up and accept defeat.
The President ought to proceed. It is a requirement of international law, yes.
In a previous statement, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, had stated that the President will travel from Abuja to Dakar on Wednesday to attend the IDA Summit and would return on Thursday.
