The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) considers President Mohammadu Buhari’s plan to visit Taraba and other states where Nigerians have been victims of a killing spree as an afterthought and a fresh device to further hoodwink the people ahead of the 2019 general elections.
This opinion is contained in a Press Release signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, the National Publicity Secretary of the People Democratic Party.
According to to the press release, made available to Naija News, Kola stated that it is alarming that Mr. President will consider visiting some of these states months after marauders, insurgents and bandits committed their havocs.
Mr. President has been in the country and never thought it necessary to pay a condolence visit to any of these states until Nigerians raised the alarm alleging a manifest indifference on his part.
It is even more pathetic that in Benue state, President Buhari summoned the leaders of the bereaved people to the Presidential villa, Abuja, rather than complying with the age-long tradition of Africans by visiting the bereaved
Naija news as earlier reported that President Buhari would be visiting Taraba, Benue, Rivers, Others to see firsthand the troubled spots in the states.
