Nigeria: Buhari Is Not In Charge of Anything - Secondus

The Peoples Democratic Party, the Centre for the Defence of Human Rights and the National Conscience Party have berated Buhari over the IG’s refusal to relocate to Benue State.

The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, said Buhari was not in charge of the All Progressives Congress government.

Secondus told one of our correspondents that because the President had been far from the people, the cabal in the Presidency had hijacked him.

He said, “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?”

Also, the PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, noted that Buhari’s visit to Benue State came several months after the massacre of Nigerians.

It said that the visit was needless, adding that it merely served as a billboard of his (Buhari) administration’s gross insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians.

The PDP said President Buhari’s visits to troubled states, particularly Benue, served no sincere purpose.

It asked, “What is the purpose of the condolence visit when it does not come from the heart but orchestrated to deceive and beguile the people ahead of the 2019 general elections?

According to the party, after the killings in Benue State, Buhari summoned the leaders of the state and the bereaved to Abuja, rather than complying with the age-long tradition of Africans by visiting the state.

The PDP stated, “Months after their tears have dried, the Presidency is now trying to use them for a political posturing by staging a cosmetic condolence visit just to score a political point.”

It asked the President to tell Nigerians the steps taken by his government to ensure adequate protection for the people and to end the daily bloodletting in the land.

On his part, an aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, in his twitter handle, said Buhari did not know what was happening in the country.

Omokri wrote, “Dear President @NAkufoAddo, come and see the person who wants to help you fight corruption in Ghana. A man who is clueless about happenings in his own government wants to teach Ghana how to govern!”

The CDHR said Buhari’s order which was disobeyed should make heads roll in his administration.

The CDHR President, Malachy Ugwummadu, said the act showed “a dysfunctional government from the highest level of operation which was the commander-in-chief.”

He said, “If the commander-in-chief is just realising that his command was not obeyed one month after, there is something wrong with the system. By now, heads should have rolled in this system.”

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.

Tanko, in a telephone interview with one of our correspondents, said, “How can the President not be aware? If indeed he is not aware; it goes to show how this administration is being run.

“With all due respect, if the man (IGP) has not done what he is supposed to do as instructed, it simply means he is undermining your authority and as President you should know what to do.”

Also the Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership said the President must demand an explanation from the IG.

The CACOL Director, Debo Adeniran, said, “The President does not have to take any impulsive action. He must hear from the IG. To take what the state government and members of the communities are saying may not be in the direction of fairness and justice.”
