Uche Secondus

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus, has attacked President Muhammadu Buhari accusing him of being insensitive after he opted to visit Bauchi instead of Benue State where many were killed by rampaging herdsmen.

Secondus said the President should’ve visited Benue State to commiserate with the people and the Catholic Church, which lost two priests and 17 other worshippers “in a senseless killing” by herdsmen instead of embarking on his ongoing two-day visit to Bauchi State on Thursday (today).

According to a report by Punch, Secondus said that while the nation and the Christian community, globally, mourn the “brutal murder” of the two priests, the President decided to “jump into an aircraft to Bauchi State” on a two-day visit without going to the venue of the murder in Benue State to commiserate and see things for himself, being the Commander-in-Chief.

Secondus spoke in a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Mr. Ike Abonyi in Abuja on Thursday, that what the President was doing was “a clear show of arrogance and lack of empathy;” wondering why the needless bloodletting in Benue State should not attract his (Buhari’s) feelings.

He said, “There is no time a people need show of empathy and concern more than when they are in mourning mood, as is the case with the people of Benue state.”
