The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) calls on President Muhammadu Buhari
to openly reprimand the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotum
Idris, if indeed the deployment of policemen to the Benue State House Assembly was done against his wish.
Party says President Buhari has been pretending on matters of state
requiring his direct responsibilities saying the situation in Benue is
one of such.
The party invites Nigerians to recall that in the heat of killings in
Benue State, Mr. President told the nation that he was not aware that
the IGP did not carry out his instruction to stay in Benue State and ensure peace.
Nigerians already know that President Buhari is surrounded by aides who have the licence of ignoring his instructions knowing fully well that nothing will happen.
Our party therefore finds it confounding that the Presidency will come out to attempt an exoneration of President Buhari over the disgraceful situation in Benue State.
If anything, the PDP sees the Presidency’s denial of any role in the deployment of policemen to the Benue State House of Assembly as
Nigerians know where the “order from above” resides and they have
accepted their error of judgement in the choice of President Buhari
during the 2015 election.
