Trip follows on heels of criticism of Vice President’s visit
By John Eche
Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari has finally arrived in Jos, capital of Plateau State where no less than 86 citizens were murdered in cold blood in yet another gory massacre carried out by suspected Fulani herdsmen at the weekend.
The President’s visit is following in the wake of criticism following a visit Monday by the Vice president, Yemi Osinbajo.
In the view of the critics, it was not proper for the president not to have promptly visited in person, given the scale of the massacre.
Earlier on Tuesday, the president was in Calabar, the capital of Cross River State, where he had been billed to commission an Automated Rice Seed and Seedling Factory being constructed by the state government.
The president is expected to commiserate with the people the state and be briefed on the existing security infrastructure.
