Nigeria: Adesina Explains President Buhari's Silence on Southern Kaduna Killings

As the death toll from the attacks on Goska village in Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State rises to about 11, Presidential spokesperson Femi Adesina has explained why President Buhari has remained silent on the matter.

Speaking on a Television programme, Adesina said President Buhari was silent on the on-going violence in Southern Kaduna because Governor el-Rufai was on top of the matter. Speaking on the matter he had this to say:

“You don’t have to hear from the President on that matter. When it pays us, we talk about federalism and true federalism; yet you want the president and presidency to talk about everything.

“When a thing like this happens in a state, there is a chief security officer and he is supposed to be on top of the matter. Governor el-Rufai was at the villa to brief the President.

“So why should the President’s then be talking about it? True federalism means the governor should be in charge and he is in charge of it.”

According to him, “The Federal Government has roles to play, but not as much as the state and local governments.”
