IDP camp bombing: Buhari has failed – Oby Ezekwesili blasts

The convener of the Bring Back Our Girls, BBOG group, Oby Ezekwesili, has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his response to the accidental bombing of an Internally Displaced Person’s, IDP camp in Ranna, Borno State by Air Force officials.

The accidental bombing led to the loss of lives, during a final phase of mop up operation in the state.

Following the incident, President Buhari on Wednesday cancelled the Federal Executive Council meeting and sent a high-profile delegation to the scene of the accidental bombing in Rann to commiserate with the victims and also sympathized with the Borno State government.

But the Former Minister of Education says Buhari’s response was insensitive.

According to her, Buhari has failed as a leader to show sensitivity to the plight of citizens who are suffering greatly.

In a series of tweets ‏@obyezeks in which she tagged the president’s personal handle, @MBuhari, Ezekwesili tweeted:

“@MBuhari: You have failed to demonstrate sensitivity to the grief of your Citizens. VISIT THE IDP CAMPS AND SEE.

“You have failed to demonstrate sensitivity to the grief of your Citizens. VISIT THE VICTIMS OF RANN NOW.

“You have failed to demonstrate sensitivity to the grief of your Citizens. VISIT SOUTHERN KADUNA NOW.
