Those against Buhari accusing him of sponsoring killer herdsmen to deny him votes in 2019, says Igbokwe


Allegation that President Muhammadu Buhari is condoning killer herdsmen because they are his kinsmen has been described as a deliberate ploy by the opposition against his reelection bid.

In separate reactions to the allegation, two loyalists of President Buhari alleged that the game plan among opposition was to continue to label him in bad light in order to deny him of votes in the coming election.

Speaking on The Morning Show on ARISE TV at the weekend, the Lagos State All Progressives Congress Publicity Secretary, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, said having performed meritoriously well, those against the president considered the herdsmen allegation as a weapon to truncate his second term ambition.

“They know they cannot get to this president. People think you can use other means but it cannot work. You know two priests were killed in Benue State and they were said to be killed by Fulani herdsmen only for us to discover that it was done by the people of Benue.

“So, we must separate politics from some of these things. People know that they cannot get to the president. He is honest, he is truthful and this president is hardworking. They know they cannot get to him so they manufacture all sorts of things just to bring the president down to their level but you know it cannot work.

“I have seen money seized from people and they are not complaining. I have seen houses seized from people and they are not complaining. They just want you to take what they have taken and set them free. May be people are not seeing that. I have seen abandoned projects all over the country being fixed.
