Confusion As President Buhari Refuses To Visit One Of The Most Volatile States In The North, Delegates Osinbajo

There was a little bit of confusion, as President Muhammadu Buhari delegated Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, to visit Numan, Adamawa State, to condole with the people of the area, over the recent spate of violence which led to several deaths.

After arriving Yola Airport, where he was received by Governor Jibrilla Bindow, Osinbajo proceeded to the Palace of the Lamido Adamawa, Barkindo Mustapha.

The Vice President, held a closed-door meeting with Mustapha and other Chiefs across the State.

He then proceeded to Numan, where he was received by the Chief of the community, the Hamma Bachama, Honest Irmiya, in his Palace.

“I am here on Mr. President’s instruction; he wants a first-hand report of what happened in Numan and Mubi earlier”, Osinbajo said, promising that, “a permanent solution would be worked out.”

The Spokesperson to the Vice President, Laolu Akande, later tweeted that Osinbajo, “condoles victims and adds that impunity would not be condoned anymore regarding this conflicts.”

“What our people want is to be led to progress. As leaders, our duty is to lead the people towards prosperity and development”, Osinbajo was quoted as saying.

“That is the kind of leadership we must provide. If we do not provide that, then we have lost our rights to be leaders.”

However, critics keep on wondering why Buhari who is from the North, deliberately refused to visit the violence prone area.
