President Yar’Adua Condemns Bhutto’s Assassination


Late Benazir Bhutto

President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua received with immense shock and sadness news of Ms. Benazir Bhutto’s brutal assassination earlier today in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

A press statement signed by the Special Adviser to President Yar’Adua on Communications, Mr Olusegun Adeniyi on Thursday December 27 said the President and the Federal Government of Nigeria utterly deplore and condemn the wanton act of mindless political violence which has taken the life of a very brave woman, true democrat and great leader of her people.

On behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria, President Yar’Adua wishes to convey his sincere condolences to the Ms. Bhutto’s family, the Government of Pakistan and her millions of supporters.

He urges them to take solace in the knowledge that she died in active pursuit of her vision of true democracy for her country, and that in death, she has become an eternal martyr to the cause she believed in with all her heart.

President Yar’Adua prays that Almighty Allah should grant her fearless soul perfect peace and rest in Paradise.

    Her assassination was a senseless act carried out by agents of evil and darkness. She remain even in death mightier than the lowests of the lows who masterminded her demise.

    Every drop of her blood no doubt will go a long way to provide peace and stability to that troubled region and guarantee the world security which was the theme of her last campaign speech.
