THE Middle Belt Movement for Justice and Peace, MBMJP, has said there is discontent in Benue State against the All Progressives Congress, APC, led Federal Government over the armed herdsmen induced humanitarian crisis in the state.

The MBMJP said with over 1.5 million of its farming populace now residing in Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, camps, Benue State is facing its worst economic and humanitarian crisis without any tangible or meaningful assistance from the Federal Government. 

According to a statement issued weekend in Makurdi by the Convener of MBMJP, Joe Bukka, “majority of Benue people are not happy that victims of herdsmen crisis in the state are stilled holed up in IDPs camps and not catered for by the federal government.

“Benue is understandably not happy with the Federal Government because over 1.5 million of the farming populace of the state are currently taking refuge in IDPs camps and not in their farms, forcing the prices of food stuffs in the state to go beyond the reach of the ordinary people ars after the federal Government promised to resettle the IDPs nothing has been done while their counterparts in the North East are getting all the attention and being supported by the government.

“The people of Benue state feel betrayed that the Federal Government has refused to treat and accord serious attention to the humanitarian crisis in the state thereby leaving the already overwhelmed state government to continue to shoulder the challenge alone.

“The general impression in the state is that by leaving the state government with its little resources to cater for over 1.5 million IDPs, the federal government cared less about the humanitarian situation in the state.

“So the truth is that the people of Benue state are not happy with the Federal Government and until the government lives up to its constitutional responsibilities by taking steps to resettle the displaced persons and assist the state government to tackle the humanitarian crisis, Benue people will continue to resent the federal government for abandoning them in their time of need,” he said.
