Shehu Sani, senator representing Kaduna central, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to pay a condolence visit to Zamfara state before commencing his campaign rally.

Buhari is billed to flag off his re-election campaign in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state capital, on Friday.

But Sani asked the president to pay a visit first to crisis-torn Zamfara, before heading to Akwa Ibom.

Violence broke out in Zamfara on Monday after some internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Tsafe took to the streets to protest the recent killings in the state.

The north-western state has suffered a series of attacks, leading to loss of lives and properties.

In November, Abdulaziz Yari, the state governor, said 155 persons were killed and another 50 abducted by bandits in less than a month.

Sani said he believes and hopes that Buhari would heed his advice.

“The President should visit Zamfara to commiserate and condole, before Akwa Ibom to rally;and I believe he will,hopefully,” Sani wrote on Twitter.

The lawmaker had on Monday, accused the northern elite of being silent on the killings in the region.

He had listed fear of being seen as anti-government, belief that Buhari is doing his best in curbing the crisis or as a result of their indifference to the plight of the poor, as the reasons for their alleged silence.
