In a statement issued to journalists in Jos, Ambassador Pofi, while condemning the unfortunate killings rukuba road about a week ago berated the Presidency for not acting swiftly in condemning killings in Miango, Bassa LGA which happened few days before the rukuba road incident and also the recent attack at Yelwa Zangam which left over 35 people dead.

According to his statement which pointed out that while  “It is common knowledge that President Muhammadu Buhari does not belong to everybody, it is no longer news that he belongs to the Muslim Fulani tribe of Northern of the Sub Saharan Africa“. Ambassador Pofi stressed that he wondered why the Special Adviser to the President on Media, Mr Garba Shehu was yet to speak about the killings of over 35 innocent people at Yelwa Zangam which took place less than a week after the rukuba road incident, in which he came out to condemn in strong terms, wondering if all Nigerian lives matter.

Ambassador John Pofi used the opportunity to hail the Plateau State Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Reverend Father Polycarp Lubo who said, it is not time for prayers but time for action.

According to Ambassador John Pofi, “…whenever evil is perpetuated, let us all, Muslims, Christians and traditional worshipers come out en mass without minding who, where or what faith such a person profess or come from and fight him or her wholeheartedly, if not, one day, what goes around will certainly come around.”

Ambassador Pofi used the opportunity to commiserate with Plateau people, the families of those who lost their loved ones and prayed God to visit them, grant them the ability to bear the loss, urging them with tears in his eyes and heart to leave vengeance to God.
