The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Alhaji Mohammed Idris, said that President Bola Tinubu has apologized for the recent bombing that killed scores in Tudun Biri in Kaduna State.
The minister said this when the Chief of Defence Staff General Christopher Musa paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja on Friday.
He said that the incident was unfortunate which called for the president’s apology.
He urged the military to exercise due diligence in carrying out their duties to avoid a recurrence.
He applauded the military effort in curbing insurgencies in the country.
He said, “However, it is important for people to know what the Armed Forces are doing. They toil day and night and even pay the supreme price for us and the country to be safe. What happened at Tudun Biri in Kaduna State was unfortunate, and President Bola Tinubu has apologised. We appeal that, next time, due diligence should be done.
“When we have issues of insurgency and banditry, it gives the country a bad image, and if not nipped in the bud, then there will be a problem. The concept of nationalism and patriotism must be brought back because we have seen the erosion of our national values.”
