Lives of cows more important than humans under Buhari – Wike

Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has faulted President Muhammadu Buhari for not attending the mass burial conducted for the 73 victims of herdsmen attack in Benue state, saying it looks as if the lives of cows are more important to Buhari than those of human beings.

Wike spoke when he received some bishops at government house, Port Harcourt.

He said if it were in some countries,  the president would have visited the state to personally assess the situation, even if 10 persons were killed.

He alleged that Nigeria had become a security nightmare.

“Human lives are not respected. In fact, the lives of cows and chicken appear to be more important than human lives,” he said.

“This has nothing to do with politics. Let us not trivialise the catastrophe that has befallen Nigeria.”

Wike also said when he visited Buhari in the past, the president told him that he was under pressure to declare a state of emergency in Rivers.

“When I went to see the president, he told me that he was under pressure to declare a state of emergency in Rivers state,” he said.

“Those things they planned to use in declaring a state of emergency in Rivers state fell on their own states and it became difficult to do so.

“When you sit and plot evil against Rivers state, you will not know peace. If they don’t apologise for plotting and executing evil against Rivers state, they will never know peace.”
