Buhari Finally Visit Benue State
After so much agitation by Nigerians that the President of the nation should make on the spot assessment and on ground condolence visits to areas affected by the recent Herdsmen attacks in the country, the President finally paid a visit to Benue state yesterday.
During President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Benue State today, he said: “We are doing everything possible to end the recurring attacks by armed herdsmen in various parts of Nigeria.
I also appealed to them to please give the security agencies a chance to deal with the situation decisively. “I will not be President forever, Governor Ortom will not be Governor forever. Long after our service, farmers and herdsmen in Benue and elsewhere in Nigeria will still exist and will live and work side-by-side. It is our hope that this co-existence will always be a peaceful one.” The President continued: “There are more than 250 ethnic groups in Nigeria, with different cultures and beliefs. God has put us together for a reason, and we can live peacefully together. On our part as Government I assure that we will diligently fulfill our duty of security and law enforcement. “Once again I sympathize with the people of Benue State, and the families of all those who have lost their lives in these attacks. The security agencies will continue to work to protect all Nigerians. And we will not allow anyone who takes the life of a Nigerian to evade justice”.
