Killings: PDP Urges Buhari to Visit Benue

18868

…Says President’s indifference is alarming.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Mohammadu Buhari to show empathy to the plight of Nigerians by paying a visit on the people of Benue State to condole with victims of the horrific killing of defenseless Nigerians by marauders.

It is very sad to note that in its insensitivity, the Federal Government did not consider it important to send a delegation to the burial of those massacred in Benue and till date, there has been no Presidential visit of any sort to commiserate with the people of Benue and other states where Nigerians are being slaughtered by bandits under the APC regime.

The PDP is worried that while innocent Nigerians were still being slaughtered and families crying out for help, the President was busy receiving APC governors on orchestrated self-serving visit to Aso Rock to endorse his personal ambition for a second tenure; a time when a soothing word and practical action from his Presidency would have helped ease the pains and reassure the people.

While we painfully note the failure of the Buhari-led Government to provide adequate security in the endangered areas, despite early warning signs, his failure to visit Benue speaks volumes.

Indeed, such a disposition is believed to be emboldening the marauders to continue their killing spree, divide and further plunge the nation into turmoil like the attacks in Kaduna, Taraba, Adamawa and other states.

It is imperative for Nigerians to note that no government, in the history of our nation, had formulated a divisive body language like this APC-controlled Federal Government and the citizens are painfully bearing the brunt.

We therefore urge the Presidency to be more responsive to issues that concern the unity of our dear nation and the security of our people. Perhaps the President may need to study and emulate the measures used by the PDP to unite our nation for 16 years.

The PDP, as the only true democratic and people-oriented party, with the interest of the people at heart, will continue to stand with Nigerians at these trying times as we match to salvage our nation from the clutches of this anti-people, insensitive and inept APC Government.
