Buhari Unaware IGP Absconded From Benue Because He is “Not Omniscient” – Adesina

One of the protesters, Jonah Kwaor, who described the operatives as overzealous, said, "We wanted the President to know the magnitude of the senseless killings in our communities, but security men, including the police, drove us away and seized some of our placards".

The president had asked Idris to move to Benue after 73 persons were killed in herdsmen-farmers clashes in January, but during his visit to the state on Monday, the president was told that the IGP did not do as directed. "So, it is not as if the President will just say 'this is where I will go.' It is a concerted thing".

Reacting to the development and the criticism that trailed the president's comment, the presidential spokesman said the alleged disobedience is yet to be confirmed.

Trudeau also said it was in part due to the hard work of Canadian officials that Trump exempted Canada from the tariffs last week. While the penalties take effect later this month, Trump has encouraged countries to try negotiating exemptions for themselves.


Similarly, the National Chairman of the NCP, Dr. Yunusa Tanko, said the President's claim that he was unaware of the refusal of the IGP to comply with his directive was unacceptable.

"Nigerians have completely lost hope in President Muhammadu Buhari and his incompetent administration". Nigerians everywhere are wondering why Mr President didn't do a follow up on his instructions to IGP Idris to relocate to Benue and stop the killings and what will happen now that he knows, his orders were defiled by the IGP.

"The president may not know everything".

"If the Presidency is not committed to monitoring critical issues such as security, then Nigerians are no longer in doubt as to why other sectors, particularly our once robust economy, had gone comatose under the Buhari administration".

"Nigerians are miffed that while the wailings over these daily bloodletting are yet to abate, President Buhari is busy announcing his plans to return to Benue to seek for another round of votes. This shows clinically that Mr. President is truly not aware that Nigerians have since abandoned him in his state of unawareness", the PDP stated. "Security is the responsibility of people from the wards to the local government, traditional rulers, states governors and up to the Federal". "We are in a serious problem in Nigeria", said Fayose.
