President Jonathan Shelves PDP Rally in Adamawa Over Abducted School Girls
President Goodluck Jonathan has shelved his planned visit to Adamawa State for the Peoples Democratic Party’s Unity Rally scheduled for next week Tuesday.
According to sources within the party, the decision of the president to shelve the trip is as a result of the “mood of the country.”
“The President does not want to be seen acting as insensitive to the plight of the Chibok schoolgirls. We can’t afford a repeat of what happened in Kano after the Abuja blast. That was why the trip was shelved,” the source said.
However, another source in Adamawa State said the rally was shelved because the party did not want “some disgruntled elements to use the President’s visit to launch a terrorist attack aimed at dragging the name of the president into the mud and justifying Governor Murtala Nyako’s earlier attacks on the President.”
The president has come under heavy criticism for holding a unity rally in Kano barely a day after the Nyanya bomb blast were over 70 were killed and over 200 school girls abducted in a government school in Borno.
