HURIWA Challenges Shehu To Travel By Road From Abuja To Lagos

Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has challenged a presidential media aide, Garba Shehu, to embark on road trips from Abuja to Zamfara, Kaduna or Abuja to Lagos without security details.

This challenge came following a claim by Garba Shehu that his boss President Muhammadu Buhari deserves credit for his efforts in tackling security issues in Nigeria,

The trips, according to HURIWA, should either happen or he should cover his face in shame for talking down on the hundreds of innocent citizens wasted on Nigerian roads especially in the North West by terrorists in the last six years.

Shehu made this claim on Friday while presenting a paper at the tenth year anniversary of Federal University Dutsin Ma (FUDMA) in Katsina State, where he claimed that the Buhari administration is the only government that has provided a workable solution to the herder-farmer crisis

The rights group said the spokesman lacks decorum and respect for the memories of hapless and innocent citizens whose lives were deliberately taken away by different armed non-state actors including, but not limited, to the rampaging armed Fulani terrorists.

HURIWA said it defies logic and common sense to think that one of the key spokesmen of the President could be this insensitive and reckless to utter such words.

HURIWA reminded Garba Shehu that only a few days back, armed bandits who are indeed terrorists blocked the Abuja-Kaduna Road on Sunday afternoon and kidnapped many travellers, just one of the hundreds of incidents.
