Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has described as insincere, belated, and a ploy to boost the president’s chances of re-election ahead of next year’s polls, Buhari’s  planned visit to five troubled states

In a statement by his spokesman, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said: “Obviously, the president is more concerned about his re-election in 2019 and his visit to those states he abandoned during their times of trouble is to seek votes, not to sympathise with the people on their loses.

Popular opinion however hold that the visit is coming at the heels of criticisms from enraged Nigerians who watched the president at the wedding in Kano State on Saturday of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s daughter and the son of Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State.

According to Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly, the wedding, which took place two days after Boko Haram killed UN aid workers in Rann, Borno State, portrays the insensitivity of Nigerian leaders.

He wondered why the two governors would stun the public with the pomp of their children’s wedding when the nation was still reeling from the horror of dozens of schoolgirls abducted in Yobe State.

 

After the massacre of dozens in Taraba, the president visited the state only yesterday and is expected to also reach Benue, Zamfara, Yobe and Rivers states where hundreds of citizens have been murdered in recent months.

A statement from the presidency noted that Buhari, having studied a report by the armed forces and other security agencies, is embarking on the trip to assess the situation

“On January 9 and 12, this year, 88 victims of herdsmen attacks were given mass burial in Taraba State. Also, on January 11, 2018, another 73 persons killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Benue State were buried in a mass grave in Makurdi, the state capital.

“Meaning that in Taraba and Benue States alone, 161 Nigerians were given mass burial within three days! This never caught the attention of our president. Rather, it was a visit to Nasarawa, a neighbouring state to Benue that was important to him.”
