The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to visit Benue State to condole with the victims of recent killings in the state.
A statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola, said the inability of President Buhari to visit the state to commiserate with those who lost their loved ones in the killings was pregnant with meaning.
Ologbondiyan said: “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.”
The party however urged the Presidency to be more responsive to issues that concern the unity of Nigeria and the security of people.
