Main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s Condolence Visit to Benue State Yesterday.
In a series of messages published on its official Twitter handle, the PDP accused that President Buhari did not visit the Middlebelt State out of his heart, rather out of aloofness after a major public outcry.
The Party also noted that its Mega Rally held in Dutse, Jigawa State yesterday showed that the Party is ‘the only true hope for Nigerians.’
Recall that NIGERIA NEWS reported yesterday that President Buhari blamed the Inspector General of Police for the continued killings in Benue State.
PDP’s tweets read: “@MBuhari Visit To Benue, Billboard of APC’s Insensitivity. Jigawa Rally Opens a New Vista for PDP. It is disheartening that@MBuhari can only visit his distressed citizens after a widespread outcry over his aloofness and not out of any genuine concern for their well-being.
“What is the purpose of a condolence visit when it does not come from the heart? However, our Mega Rally, held in Dutse, Jigawa State, today, has opened a new vista for our Party as the only true hope for Nigerians.
“If @MBuhari is genuinely concerned about the well-being of the people of Benue and other trouble states in the country, what decisive step has he taken to apprehend those behind the carnage and bring them to book?”
