Presidency reacts to IGP Idris' alleged disobedience to Buhari's order

Presidency reacts to IGP Idris' alleged disobedience to Buhari's order”

What I did was to call him (IGP) and give him the directive to relocate to Benue but i didn't know he has moved from here (Benue state) to Nassarawa.

Ayo Fayose, Ekiti state governor, has also criticised the president over the development, asking if he "really know anything about happenings around him".

Our correspondent, who had gone to the Benue State Government House in the early hours of the day, was told that his organisation was not among those allowed to cover the visit.

On why killings continued after the president had visited some of the places, the presidential spokesman said security is a collective responsibility.

About 30 correspondents from various media organisations including Punch, ThisDay, Vanguard, Tribune, New Telegraph, The Nation were said to have boycotted from the Benue Government House ahead of Buhari's arrival.

We are finished, worst still, as a nation to know that sombody with proven sanity can still exude confidence in president Buhari's government, after the Benue disgrace and show of gross incompetence in all spheres of governance.

"For our party, the PDP, the expression of President Buhari has once again vindicated our position that our nation has been placed on autopilot cruise with a cabal pretending to be managing our affairs".

"Indeed, Nigerians need to know; what exactly did President Buhari, as the Commander-in-Chief, do when he realized that the IGP did not carry out his orders?"

"The fact is that there is no sense of remorse by the Government as the President himself spent only two hours in Benue state without visiting the victims or even making any direct policy statement on those behind the killings and how to forestall future bloodletting". He asked President Buhari to arrest the killer Fulani herdsmen that killed Benue people.

Our correspondent noted that security operatives from Abuja took over the activities at the state's seat of government. "The relationship between farmers and herders will continue; it behooves us to keep encouraging ourselves to live together peacefully", he said.
