Written by on February 7, 2022

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has visited Benue State and donated 50 million naira to support Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the north-central state.

Speaking during a courtesy call on Governor Samuel Ortom, Atiku also called for more support for IDPs, peaceful co-existence between the Fulanis and other tribes in the state and country and warned against ethnic profiling, especially of criminals.

He equally commended the administration of Governor Ortom for his peacebuilding efforts in Benue, calling on leaders to bring every Nigerian together, regardless of their religious, political, and ethnic differences.

While speaking earlier, the governor accused the former vice president of neglecting the state when the people were terrorised and harassed by alleged Fulani terrorists.

The governor, however, expressed confidence that for him, the success of the PDP at the 2023 elections remains critical above his personal interests, stressing that what the party needs now is to remain united in order to reclaim and salvage the country.
