President Goodluck Jonathan on behalf of the Federal Government and people of Nigeria on Thursday extended condolences to President Francois Hollande and the people of France as they mourn the victims of Wednesday’s dastardly terrorist attack.

According to a statement issued by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, Jonathan joined the rest of the civilized world in condemning the “heinous, senseless and totally unjustifiable killing of journalists and other persons” during the attack on the satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo.
He believed that the cowardly and ignoble attack by violent extremists is a monstrous assault on the right to freedom of expression.
Jonathan also saw the attack on Charlie Hebdo as another manifestation of the depravity and brutality which the world has to contend with in what must become a truly collective effort by lovers of peace, progress and freedom across the globe to rout the agents of darkness and retrogression
The President assured President Hollande and the people of France that Nigeria stands in full solidarity with them on their day of national mourning for those who lost their lives at the hands of the terrorists.
Jonathan noted that France has been a strong ally and dependable partner in strengthening regional cooperation in the fight against terrorism in Nigeria, West Africa and Africa as a whole.
It reads: “President Jonathan pledges that his administration will continue to work with the French government and other friendly governments in all continents to end the scourge of global terrorism.”
“President Jonathan urges media practitioners worldwide not to be discouraged or disheartened by the brutal murder of their colleagues in Paris yesterday, but to remain strong and fearless in pursuit of truth and the defence of human rights and freedom of expression.”
“The President prays that God almighty will comfort the people of France, especially the bereaved families and grant speedy recovery to all those who were injured in yesterday’s attack.”
