The congress for Progressive change in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Rotimi Fashakin has grumbled that President Goodluck Jonathan ought to have visited Baga in Borno State, following the incident of April 16. A statement by Presidential Spokesman Reuben Abati says it is in the character of the CPC and its spokesperson to play to the gallery even when the occasion calls for maturity and sobriety.The problem with them is that they consider everything very unacceptable, and in particular everything relating to President Jonathan. They deserve our sympathy.
He says that President Jonathan has been very pro-active in dealing with the Baga incident. He ordered an immediate probe by the Military High Command and the intervention of rescue and AID Agencies, who have been working with the Borno State Government and other Agencies of State to ensure that the victims are rehabilitated and assisted with relief materials. Abati also says that the reports of the investigations by the Military High Command and the National Emergency Management Agency have since been made public.
