Buhari’s refusal to visit Benue State a shame – Fani-Kayode


A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has once again blasted President Muhammaudu Buhari for not visiting Benue State where several people recently lost their lives to the incessant attacks by Fulani herdsmen.

The former minister said it was a shame that Buhari refused to visit the victims of the massacre.

Fani-Kayode in a tweet on Thursday, hailed the Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose and his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike for their condolence visit to Governor Samuel Ortom and people of the state.

He wrote, “@GovAyoFayose and @GovWike have shown immense courage and strong leadership by visiting Benue to commiserate with Gov.Ortom and his people for the mass murder of their kinsmen by Fulani terrorists. The fact that @MBuhari refuses to do same is shameful. Proud of @OfficialPDPNig!”
