Recall that no fewer than 71 persons were reportedly killed by suspected herdsmen in January, which precipitated Benue traditional rulers to visit Buhari at the state house Abuja, along with Gov Ortom.

A visit that many stakeholders condemned, noting that Buhari should have been the one to visit them.

In view of the above statement, argument and counter argument emanating from different groups and Presidency respectively, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce wrote;

“Dear President Muhammadu Buhari, you can learn a thing or two from President Donald J. Trump about leadership.

“Trump is on his way to Parkland, Florida to condole with the victim’s families and the survivors of the #ParklandSchoolShooting.

“Yet two months after 73 people were killed in Benue, you are yet to visit them!

In another development, Bruce advised Nigerians to pick up their PVC’s and eliminate all the unwanted leaders coming 2019 general election.

In his words, “If you haven’t got PVCs and you complain of bad leaders, note that complaints don’t get rid of bad governments but Vote’s do.

“There are long lines to collect PVCs, but if you can spend hours on fuel queues, you can spend hours to get a PVC to vote out those who make us queue for fuel”, he finally wrote.
