The chairman of the peoples’ democratic party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus has weighed on president MuhammaduBuhari’ss recent comment in Benue that he had no idea that the Inspector general of Police, Idris Kpotum left Benue for Nassarawa after he had instructed him to maintain a base there to quell the Fulani Herdsmen and farmers’ crisis.
The President was quoted as saying; “What I did was to call him and give him the directive. I didn’t know he moved here (Benue State) and didn’t spend … and then moved to Nasarawa. It’s only now that I am knowing that. But I know I dispatched him here,” the President said.
Reacting to the development, Secondus in a brief statement to Punch said that Buhari was not in charge of the All Progressives Congress government. He said that the Cabals were in charge and had hijacked government.
“Buhari is not in charge of anything. He does not have genuine people around him.
“How can a President give a directive and it is ignored? Yet he did not know. How would he know when he surrounds himself with sycophants?”
