VP Brother’s Death, Abducted Schoolgirls Expose Govt’s Double Standard’


The Kaduna Salvation Movement (KASMO) has lamented the hypocrisy and insensitivity of government in Nigeria, accusing the political class of playing double standard.
The group observed that since Vice President Namadi Sambo brother’s death, most activities at federal and state levels have been paralysed under the guise of paying condolences, while about 230 girls have been abducted for over two weeks now and nothing concrete seems to have been done for their release.
In a press statement issued by the chairman of the group, Mr Mohammed Musa Soba, and made available to newsmen yesterday in Kaduna, it viewed as “disgraceful and despicable the double standard of our political leaders both in the discharge of their constitutional responsibilities and moral obligations placed on us by our different cultures and respected religions.
“It is ironic that while the entire country is being traumatised by the abduction of over 230 innocent school girls and the continuous killing of innocent souls across the country, not even a condolence visit was paid to the families of the bereaved and the distressed. But when the brother of Vice President Namadi Sambo, Captain Sabo Sambo died in a motor accident few days ago, the business of government was abruptly brought to an end with the postponement of even the weekly federal executive council meeting.
“While we sympathise with Vice President Sambo over his brother’s demise, we condemn the attitude of turning personal issues into state matters while the real issues that border on the security of lives and property of ordinary Nigerians are treated with levity and criminal contempt.”
