Buhari visiting Nasarawa to condole with people over loss of cattle, death of Fulani herdsmen – PDP



The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Tuesday lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari for visiting Nasarawa State. 

PDP insisted that Buhari’s visit to Nasarawa was to “commiserate with the people for the killings and the loss of cattle of some herders in the area.”

The party wondered why the President would visit Nasarawa instead of Benue State that has high level of casualties due to farmers, Fulani herdsmen crisis.

In a tweet via its Twitter handle, the former ruling party stressed that Buhari, “Is just for a section of the country and not for everybody as he claimed in his inauguration speech.”

The tweet reads, “President Buhari Visits to Nasarawa State:

“This action of President @Mbuhari has once again reminded Nigerians that the President is just for a section of the country and not for everybody as he claimed in his inauguration speech.

“We are however surprised that instead of President @Mbuhari to visit Benue State that had similar incidents with mind bodging casualties involving humans, the President choose to call on Lafia, neglecting the people of Benue State.

“We commend @Mbuhari for visiting Lafia, the Capital of Nasarawa State on the pretense of commissioning special schools, but to commiserate with the people for the killings and the loss of cattles of some herders in the area.”
