Massive explosion in Abuja, Nigeria - Hundreds of people dead or injured.
| April 14, 2014
An explosion at a motor park in Nyanya, just outside of Abuja, in the Federal Capital Territory, has left hundreds of people dead or injured. At last count, 71 people have been confirmed dead and 124 others injured. The number of dead is expected to rise as emergency workers continue to search for victims. The explosion occurred in a section of the motor park allocated to luxury buses during the early hours of the morning and about 16 luxury buses were burnt. President Goodluck Jonathan visited the scene of the blast and hospitals where the injured are being treated and blamed Boko Haram for the explosion saying, "You can see that I am here with Senate President, Senator David Mark. And the Chairman of PDP, Chief of Defence, service chiefs, National Security Adviser, and that the security agencies are also doing their best to handle the situation. Let us first express our collective condolence to the family of those who lost their lives and also commend the security agencies for their quick response. âIt is not the number, let me appeal to our country men and women, for them to continue to work, very hard on this issue of Boko Haram. We shall get over it. We want to appeal to our media to begin to come up with enlightenment programme for our people, to make citizens very aware of suspicious movement so that they can be reported promptly to security agencies." âLet us become more observant and monitor the movement of people so that we can reduce. We will do our best, the security agencies will continue to work hard to ensure that we get over this issue of Boko Haram.â

The buck stops at the President's desk. He needs to declare a State of emergency in Borno State and let the military handle the situation. He was lucky that these guys missed the schedule for his daughter's wedding. Maybe that would have drummed the seriousness into him.

GEJ the fight is getting closer to you. As a President you need to take charge of the situation. He has to stop blaming others.
