A member of the House of Representatives representing Sagbama/Ekeremor, Bayelsa State, yesterday, said that President Muhammadu Buhari was insincere in his actions concerning the violence in Rivers State.
According to him, President Buhari kept mum on the killings by Fulani herdsmen in Agatu, Benue State, as well as the violence which took place in Bayelsa State during the last governorship election, adding that what happened in Rivers State was a lesser evil.
“Better still, does it not show an emotional bias that Mr President chose to ignore the wanton, criminal ethnic cleansing going on in Benue State and rather spoke about a lesser evil?
“I must say that not many Nigerians are happy that the President kept quiet over the Agatu and Nasarawa killings that have reached genocide heights but chose to internationalize a local political heat in Rivers State. Until Mr President speaks on the killings perpetrated by herdsmen in Benue and Nasarawa States, I do not consider him a sincere leader. Mr President must speak out,” said Fred Agbedi.
