Osinbajo's visit to Benue was a campaign for 2019 - PDP chieftain

Editor's note: The deputy national secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Engineer Emmanuel Agbo, describes the recent visit of Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo to Benue state as a political move ahead of the 2019 presidential election.

Read below:

The visit of the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, to Benue state, particularly to Abagana, Gbajimba and Anyii Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp is a political attempt at window dressing the already damaged image of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration and an insult to the grieving people of Benue state.

Osinbajo did not visit the people of Benue when two priests and seventeen parishioners were killed, neither does he agree that the herdsmen who killed 73 Christians in the state are terrorists. It is pathetic that while Osinbajo speaks loudly against former President Goodluck Jonathan and the opposition, he remained voiceless until our people were made refugees in their own land.

Since the news of the cabal's plan to pick a new running mate for Buhari ahead of the 2019 presidential election became public knowledge, Osinbajo has since shown a level of desperation that casts a doubt publicly over his professed Christian faith.

Osinbajo's promise during his visit to the Internally Displaced Persons camps in the state that President Buhari has approved a total of N10 billion for the rehabilitation of communities affected by violent attacks in parts of the country further shows that the federal government is totally disconnected from the people. This shameless act affirms that Buhari's administration fail to realize that money cannot replace or buy back the lives lost to the reckless slaughter of innocent citizens by Fulani extremists.
