Jonathan’s message on his official Facebook page on Sunday, his fourth Facebook posting since handing over power to Buhari, also urged Nigerians to continue praying for peace. “The death of any Nigerian at the hands of terrorists is a sad reminder that the war on terror is a task for all Nigerians, not just the armed forces,” he said.
“I urge all Nigerians to continue to pray for peace in Nigeria and to support the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, as the government does its best to bring an end to these acts of terror and secure all Nigerians. May God bless Nigeria.”
Jonathan’s message came on the back of renewed Boko Haram onslaught on innocent citizens in the the North-east, the latest being Sunday morning’s suicide blast at a branch of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in the Jigawa area of Potiskum, Yobe State, which resulted in the death of six.
