In a statement, Jordaan said, “On behalf of the South African Football Association, I would like extend our condolences to the Nigerian Football Federation and the people of Nigeria for their loss. It is indeed shocking that people who have gathered in peace to watch a game of football should be targeted in this manner. May the families of the deceased find peace and grace in this time of sorrow."

The President also took the opportunity to join millions of people around the world in the call for a quick return of the schoolgirls that have been held hostage by Boko Haram. “We also want to pledge our solidarity with the people of Nigeria in the search for the school girls abducted by Boko Haram on 14 April, 2014. We hope and pray that the children are returned to their families safe and unharmed.

 

He concluded, “We wish the Nigerian people everlasting peace, prosperity and freedom from strife.”
