Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe on Friday, November 20, revealed President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has failed the country, insisting that there is no way to paper over their failures.
“The party (PDP) has its position and the position is very simple: this government has failed,” the Senator revealed in an interview
“You don’t have any other way of trying to cover it. You can say all the rhetoric; and make all the propaganda. You can go ahead and try to pull the wool over the eyes of the people; but the #EndSARS protest showed a failure of this government. It is not that is just failing now. It has been failing all along and we have been continually pointed it out.”
Furthermore, Abaribe accused the FG of failing to listen to advice and always seeing every counsel as an opposition that should be crushed.
He claimed the present government is mired in the past; and does not have any connection with the 21st century.
“On the floor of the Senate, I have always spoken, ‘You are not getting it right,’” Abaribe explained.
“The only problem we have with this government is that advice to them is like an opposition they need to crush. They just think that in the 21st century that with all the information we have; with all the contacts that we have with the rest of the world, that people will just continue being subdued as they used to do in Stalin’s country (formerly the Soviet Union) or in North Korea and all that.”
While reiterating that the Buhari administration has failed in delivering development to the nation, he stated that “all we are waiting for is to throw out this government in the next election.”
Meanwhile, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Uche Secondus said that the strength of the party in Ebonyi and southeast was intact in spite of Gov. Dave Umahi’s defection to the ruling party.
Secondus said this in his remark at the 90th National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the PDP held at its national headquarters on Thursday, November 19, in Abuja.
Secondus said that the PDP refused to be blackmailed on reasons given by Umahi for his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“You must have read the eventual defection of Umahi to the ruling APC on Tuesday; and his provocative reason of an allegation of injustice against South East by the party.
“We have refused to join issues with him in any way; but we cannot bow to any blackmail.
