Minister of Youth Development and Supervising Minister of Sports has commiserated with the Management and Staff of Thisday newspapers over the suicide bomb attacks on the Abuja and Kaduna offices of the newspaper.

In a condolence letter to Thisday, Mallam Bolaji  Abdullahi described the attacks as callous, wicked and “calculated to weaken your resolve to pursue high standard of journalism.”

Mallam Abdullahi urged the newspaper to remain firm and steadfast, “and to continue to hold on to the cherished values of free enterprise, fair and balanced reporting, which you are known for.”

He commiserated with the families their deceased, and prayed that God will give them the fortitude to bear the loss.
