Buhari prefers travelling abroad to visiting victims of banditry — Northern CAN

The Vice President of Northern Christian Association of Nigeria which includes 19 northern States and Abuja,  John Hayab, said it was obvious that President Muhammadu Buhari cared more about travelling abroad than caring for his citizens.

He said, “The people and communities under siege by bandits do not have any contribution to make for and in Buhari’s government. That is why he has not deemed it fit to visit those communities.

“His many travels over the world are what his team believes has benefits to his government. This is to show the misplaced priority of this government which makes citizens’ lives worthless and they are being killed like chickens every day.

“A responsible government and leader will always show empathy with her subjects and care for them in their moments of pain and sorrow.”

Pogu who condemned the attitude of the President, said, “I think Mr President has lost touch with the people. If it were to be in other sane climes, that issue (killing of travellers in Sokoto) would have been a national issue enough to compel the leader of that country to visit the place and also take drastic action to forestall a reoccurrence. But here in Nigeria, that primary responsibility of the government which is security and welfare of the people is totally absent.”
