Buzzing Today: Buhari, Femi Adesina, IGP Idris

Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, has said that it remains an allegation that the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, failed to heed President Muhammadu Buhari's directive to relocate to Benue.

Securities operatives from Abuja, who had a different guest list from the one originally put together by the state, were said to have taken over the state visit. I am getting to know this at this meeting.

Reacting, however, to Buhari's statement, Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, said the president is hardly ever in charge of anything in the country.

We are finished, worst still, as a nation to know that sombody with proven sanity can still exude confidence in president Buhari's government, after the Benue disgrace and show of gross incompetence in all spheres of governance.

"With all due respect, if the man (IGP) has not done what he is supposed to do as instructed, it simply means he is undermining your authority and as President, you should know what to do", he said.

"For our party, the PDP, the expression of President Buhari has once again vindicated our position that our nation has been placed on autopilot cruise with a cabal pretending to be managing our affairs". Nigerians everywhere are wondering why Mr President didn't do a follow up on his instructions to IGP Idris to relocate to Benue and stop the killings and what will happen now that he knows, his orders were defiled by the IGP. "Whatever is going to be done to solve this security we now have in an enduring manner, the President will do".

"The Benue State Governor, Sam Ortom, is amusing. Rather, in the character of this government, Mr. President engaged in yet another blame game instead of facing issues", the statement read in part. He asked President Buhari to arrest the killer Fulani herdsmen that killed Benue people.

"How can the President not be aware?"

"How can a President give a directive and it is ignored? Security is the responsibility of people from the wards to the local government, traditional rulers, states governors and up to the Federal".
