Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili has attacked the All Progressives Congress’ administration over the re-election bid for President Muhammadu Buhari at a time of killings across the country.
Minister of communication, Adebayo Shittu after a closed-door meeting with Buhari told state house correspondents that the President’s ardent supporters would prevail on him to seek re-election.
Ezekwesili in her reaction queried Buhari’s government over the nonchalant attitude towards the killing of scores of Nigerians in Benue by Fulani herdsmen.
On her social media page, she wrote, “Of all days that APC and its stalwarts could ASSAULT our sensibilities with the announcement of launch of 2019 re-election bid for President @MBuhari , they chose yesterday!
“Same day that Citizens were TRAUMATIZED by the images of BUTCHERED BODIES of our fellow citizens?
Recall that Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom confirmed that at least 20 people were killed after suspected Fulani herdsmen attacked communities in Guma and Logo local government areas of the state.
