Enyinnaya Abaribe, Senator representing Abia South has said the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration thrives on deceit and excuses.
Speaking in Aba area of the state, Abaribe said the current administration should be voted out in 2019 for its deceits and excuses.
The lawmaker, who observed that the Buhari’s government had thrown Nigeria into huge debts, also questioned the President’s sincerity in the area of anti-graft war.
He said, “Buhari’s government came on the platform of deceit. They deceived Nigerians into thinking that they were coming as saviour and they made certain assertions that Nigerian believed.
“What we have are people who said, first, we are going to deal with the matter of security. Then, they couldn’t deal with it. When they found out they couldn’t, they turned around and said we have technically defeated Boko Haram. When they found that it couldn’t happen, all of a sudden, they stage-managed a kidnap, and suddenly, they released the people.
“Within this period, we had the whole Benue Valley starting from Taraba to Nassarawa following the Benue River, attacked by unknown persons. People are being killed every day. The Senate has compiled a list of people who have been killed. Up to a thousand, two to three million people are away in the IDPs and we are not in a war.
“Our economy is suffering because of their bad policies. And once they failed, they said Nigeria was at the brink before we came. They are now telling us that within three years, we cannot undo the bad things that PDP did in 16 years.
“For three years, this government has run on excuses. They have seen now that the public doesn’t believe them and they are getting to their waterloo. They are going to enter a difficult election in which they will not win, so they have gone into suppression.”
