Beyond The Condemnation Of UN House Bomb Attack!‏ -Femi Falana

August 28, 2011

We join the government and people of Nigeria in condemning the bombing of the United Nations Building in Abuja last Friday. We also sympathize with the bereaved families of the deceased and others  who were injured in the dastardly attack.

It is a national shame that some of the injured survivors have to be flown abroad for treatment since the National Hospital in Abuja is ill equipped to treat them . After 12 years in power the peoples democratic party led federal government should explain what has happened to all the funds allocated for the refurbishment of the National Hospital that it  has no pint of blood in its  bank.
 
However, beyond condemnations Nigerians should  take the bomb blast as a challenge to protect themselves since President Goodluck Jonathan has confessed that he himself is not safe! Since Nigerians have become cheap targets in the hands of assassins,kidnappers,armed robbers and terrorists the National Assembly should as a matter of urgency comply with section 220 of the Constitution which states that "The Federation shall establish and maintain adequate facilities for carrying into effect any Act of the National Assembly providing for compulsory military training or military service for citizens of Nigeria".
