President Muhammadu Buhari’s claim that he is unaware that the Police IG, Ibrahim Idris, flayed his directive to relocate to Benue at the height of herdsmen killings in the state has continued to earn him backlash.
Buhari had said, “I am getting to know this in this meeting. I am quite surprised,” Being his response when the people of Benue told him that IGP Idris did not spend 24 hours in the state before leaving for Nasarawa state.
Reacting, however, to Buhari’s statement, Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, said the president is hardly ever in charge of anything in the country.
“Buhari is not in charge of anything. He does not have genuine people around him.
“How can a President give a directive and it is ignored? Yet he did not know.
“How would he know when he surrounds himself with sycophants?” Secondus queried.
On his part, Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, earlier described the president’s statement as an unfortunate one.
“I am not even sure that President Buhari is aware of anything about the abducted 110 Dapchi school girls. We are in a serious problem in Nigeria,” said Fayose.
