Elderly women in Benue State under aegis of Concerned Mothers, yesterday, has asked the President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently and publicly address the nation and stop Fulani herdsmen from killing Nigerians.
The Benue women led by former Commissioner for Agriculture, Mrs. Rebecca Apedzan, also urged the President to call his appointees to order over assault on the sensibilities of citizens.
Addressing a press conference at the Doo Palace in Makurdi, the group lamented the worsening security situation in the country, especially Fulani herdsmen who kill, maim and rape thousands of people in Benue and other states.
The women also complained about the insensitive, condemnable and akin to fanning embers of crisis for the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to compare open grazing with spare parts business.
They also said: “The other aide of the President called Garba Shehu denigrates anyone who holds an opinion contrary to that of the Presidency. This is gross negation of the tenets of democracy. In democracies where government is of the people and for the people, leaders listen to constructive criticism to improve.”
