Herdsmen Killings: Visit Benue, PDP Urges Buhari

THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu 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 suspected Fulani herdsmen.

In a statement signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, it’s National Publicity Secretary, the party said it was 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.

The party suggested that the President may need to study and emulate the measures used by the PDP to unite the nation for 16 years it manned the affairs of the nation.

“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 statement partly read.
