According to Senator Shehu Sani, Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign and Domestic Debts, State Governors have no moral right to criticize President Muhammadu Buhari for non-performance.
Sani said this after a meeting with community leaders in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Tuesday.
“I will say it well; no governor in Nigeria has any moral right to call President Muhammadu Buhari a failure.
“You collect Federal allocation and local government allocation every month, so you cannot call President Buhari a failure.
“You collect Ecology fund, Paris Club fund and bailout fund so you cannot call Mr. President a failure,” Sani said.
Sani said Buhari had achieved a lot in government, even more than most State Governors.
“If you don’t want Buhari to have a cabal, you should dissolve the cabal in your own houses; and if you want Buhari to have listening ears of Nigerians, you must perform.
“I want to call on the president, as we gear up towards 2019, he should never recommend anybody for election again to the public; he should allow people to decide who they want to vote in and who they want to vote out.
“President Buhari should forget the culture of raising the hands of people; we are supporting him to contest 2019, but he should stop the culture of raising Mr A or Mr B’s hand; most of the time he is raising the hands of people who betrayed him and Nigeria”, he said.
