Atiku Condemns Inter-Communal Violence In Benue
By Naomisophy blog
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2023 polls, Atiku Abubakar, has condemned the recent killing of farmers by suspected herdsmen in Benue State.
In a statement released on his Social Media handle, Atiku condemns inter-communal violence in Benue.
“I’m saddened by the sustained clashes between farmers and herders that led to the loss of lives, including those of police officers in Gbeji community, Ukum local government area of Benue State.
The continuous escalation of intercommunal violence does not bode well for our national unity and stability. Our diversity should not be a handicap but a significant strength if we endeavour to walk in love and brotherliness.
One way of harnessing our diversity is the envisaged constitutional reform that will emphasise inclusiveness. When our people are well integrated into communities where they live, work, pay taxes and raise their children, they’d be obligated to reciprocate the love and acceptance.
My deepest condolences to the families that may have lost a loved one and to the people and government of Benue State. -AA”
