Kaduna Killings: Atiku Tells Residents What To Do
A former Vice President of Nigeria and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Atiku Abubakar, has made some suggestions about how to end the killings in Kaduna State, with a promise backing it up.
I will end the killings, Atiku says in a video shared on his Twitter page on Tuesday.
This is coming days after gunmen attacked a wedding party in Ungwan Paa-Gwandara village in Kaduna State, killing at least 14 persons.
In his reaction to the killing, a sad-looking Atiku said: "My message to the great and good people of Kaduna state.
"I am pained by the recent upheavals that have affected your state and by God’s grace, I will do everything possible to return peace to Kaduna".
He described the crisis as religious and ethnic and offered his sympathy to those affected.
"I feel sad reading and hearing about these crises and I want to make sure that they do not reoccur again.
"Nobody from outside Kaduna can come and dictate to you how to resolve this crisis.
"You have the solution and you need a leader that will listen to you," the candidate of the PDP said.
He then gave an assurance that if elected as president by the people of Kaduna State on February 16, 2019, he would inaugurate a peace conference for both Muslims and Christians within his first three months in office for residents to tell him how they can live in peace.
"I will implement those resolutions," he added.
