The course of good exercises are challenged with hurdles and ferocious intimidation but the good Lord who gives and takes and grants rest to the weary has answers to whatever happens to his children at every point in time.
With the above words, we at the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) wish to convey our deepest and heartfelt condolences to the government, families, staff, friends and the people of Kenya on the gruesome murder of 147 students of the Garisa University with several others injured.
Our hearts are filled with grief upon hearing this sad news and therefore deem it fit to extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased. May the souls of the departed rest in perfect peace. To those who sustained various degrees of injury, we share in your sorrow, we are with you in prayers, and wish you a speedy recovery.
It is very sad that many a loved one in Kenya would not have a peace of mind to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ but we pray that His death and resurrection consoles everyone that is affected by this massacre.
We therefore want to use this medium to condemn this act of Terrorism and therefore charge the Kenyan Government under the leadership of H.E Uhuru Kenyatta to divert its attention and also hasten efforts to bring the perpetrators of this act to book while offering preventive measures to curb any further attack.
We also call on all African governments, ECOWAS, AU, UN, and all stakeholders to join hands and most importantly be proactive in the fight against terrorism which is gradually gaining ground in a number of countries and needs the effort of everyone to curb it.
The activities of these terrorists should be seen as a threat to international security and therefore be tackled with all the seriousness before things get out of hand. As they say, injustice anywhere, is injustice everywhere.
