Politician blames Jos crisis on FG

By  Festus Ahon
UGHELLI—FORMER governorship aspirant in Delta State, Mr Sunny Onuesoke, has decried last Sunday’s attack on Christians in Jos, Pleteau State, and blamed the development on the federal government.

Onuesoke, who spoke on telephone with Vanguard yesterday while in Jos for a seminar, said the attack was inhuman and called on the leadership of the Christians Association of Nigeria, CAN, and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, to take a firm stand on the incessant attacks on Christians in the northern part of the country.

He held that the federal government was not doing enough to stop the attacks on Christians, adding that “the attack is barbaric and provoking. The federal government must take urgent step to address the issue to avoid its escalation.”
Onuesoke, who is the Special Project Director (Sector A), Ughelli /Asaba road dualization project, also appealed to the Plateau State Government to take more practical step to put an end to the crisis.

Sympathizing with the families of those who lost their lives and property in the ungodly attack, Onuesoke told the federal government to direct its relevant agencies to send relief materials to the affected families.

According to him, these killings are worst and more damaging in the eyes of the international community than corruption.

He appealed to the acting president to direct the security agencies to deploy more men to the area to avert a reprisal or further attacks.
