Ezekwesili lampoons Buhari over IDP camp bombing

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

Following the tragic incident, President Buhari yesterdat cancelled the Federal Executive Council meeting and sent a high-profile delegation to the scene of the accidental bombing in Rann to sympathize 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.
