Peter Obi’s Visit To Benue IDP Camp On Christmas Day Sparks Reactions Online

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has sparked mixed reactions over his visit to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) at the Abagana camp in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

Naija News earlier reported that Obi visited the camp to celebrate the 2022 Christmas Day with the IDPs and show solidarity with their five years of prolonged displacement.

Speaking at the IDP camp, the LP flagbearer said his visit to the camp is to show that he is displeased about their five years of living in the camp due to the activities of suspected herdsmen.

The former Governor of Anambra State lamented that the displaced persons were forced to abandon their homes due to perversive insecurity, noting that he shared in their pains and losses.

Obi encouraged them to be patient and look to God for intervention, hence his decision to join them on a day like Christmas when many families share the love.

He challenged the Federal Government to resettle the displaced persons so that they will move on with their lives, saying that the next government will not tolerate its citizens living in IDP camps.

The LP flagbearer, however, expressed sadness that the government is failing in its responsibility to protect its citizens.

However, some netizens took to social media to express their reactions to the visit of the LP flagbearer to the IDP camp in Benue state.

See some of the reactions below.

Borno which is the worst hit by insurgency is resettling IDP people in their homes. What is Ortom doing? Those following you should know that a failure identifies with a failure.

Unlike leaders, we have witnessed in present times who ignore the PLIGHT of the citizens they should be serving. SIR may Nigeria not lose you!”

This is who you are, Caring, humble, and loving, unlike other people. God bless you the incoming president merry Christmas once again.
