The leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has commended the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and his Ekiti State counterpart, Ayo Fayose for visiting Benue State and extending assistance to the victims of recent violent attacks and other internally displaced persons in the state.
The party’s leadership which had earlier visited Benue at the wake of the attacks, said the gesture by the two Governors at a time the Presidency and the Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had been turning blind eye to the sufferings of
the victims, underlines PDP’s commitment to the wellbeing of all Nigerians in line with its undying ideology and vision of its founding fathers.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiya, in a statement on Thursday said it was disheartening that the Presidency had refused to visit Benue state recalling that when the APC Governors visited after many entreaties, they failed to show any empathy to the victims, a stance which further displayed APC’s disdain for Nigerians.
The party said that instead of APC empathizing with the people, and ensuring that the perpetrators of the attacks were brought to book, the party leadership had shown more concern for their selfish political interests across the nation.
The party urged the people of Benue state to be vigilant and continue to work with their leaders while assuring of its support always.
