Presidency defends Buhari over failure to visit Agatu, Boko Haram victims




The Presidency has said there is no need for President Muhammadu Buhari to visit Agatu, the Benue state community ravaged by suspected Fulani herdsmen, which has left hundreds of people dead and thousands displaced.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, who was featured on “The Osasu show” yesterday, said President Buhari had already made a statement on the Agatu massacre and should therefore not be expected to talk every time because “he is not a talkative.”
Continuing, he said, “A section of this country wants a talkative president and it doesn’t work that way. When the Agatu thing happened, we issued a statement – a statement in which President Buhari said he would ask for briefings, and it would be looked into.”
According to Adesina, “Some people kept saying he has not spoken, and I asked myself, what else would he say after the statement that had been issued.
