What the President meant to say

“For those who insist that there was a rush to judgment on the part of the President on this matter, it bears restating that what he sought to do was to reassure Nigerians that the perpetrators will be found, a process which could be hampered by a rather casual attribution of the violence to MEND,” - Goodluck/Sambo Campaign Organisation

I just read this rather amusing piece on Next. I don't know what to say. If President Goodluck Jonathan wanted to tell Nigerians and the world that the perpetrators of the bombing in Abuja would be found, could he not just say so?

Why say categorically that MEND was not responsible for the attacks?

Poor Nigeria.
