On behalf of himself, the government and people of the Federal Government of Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan extends heartfelt condolences to President Uhuru Kenyatta and all Kenyans over the shocking loss of lives in yesterday’s terrorist attack on Nairobi.
President Jonathan and Nigeria join the rest of the world in condemning the atrocious, callous and abominable attack on defenceless Kenyans and foreign nationals at the Westgate Shopping Mall in the Kenyan capital.
The President assures President Kenyatta and the people of Kenya of Nigeria’s sympathy and full solidarity as they grapple with the consequences of the attack and strive to end the terrorist siege.
President Jonathan further assures them that in keeping with the spirit of recent agreements for enhanced bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and Kenya, the Federal Government will give all possible support and assistance to Kenya in its efforts to contain the scourge of terrorism and avoid a recurrence of yesterday’s heinous attack on Nairobi.
He prays that God Almighty will comfort all those who lost loved ones in the attack and grant the injured speedy recovery.
