Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe said on Wednesday that President Muhammadu Buhari is not taken seriously by any governmental official or his appointees.
According to Abaribe, the President’s medical trip to the United Kingdom suggests that the APC Government does not stay true to its words and should never be trusted.
Senator Abaribe made this insinuation while appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
Abaribe who noted that Buhari’s medical trip did not contravene the law, however, stated that the exercise breached a moral contract, one that was set by the president himself.
Commenting on the security situation in the country, the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, slammed President Muhammadu Buhari’s handling of the nation’s insecurity, saying nobody takes Buhari seriously not even the service chiefs.
‘Why would we take him (President Muhammadu Buhari) seriously? Just the day after he had said we would no longer accept all these kidnappings, this would be the last, they kidnapped the next day,’ he queried.
‘And those people are still there; those innocent Nigerians are still in captivity up till now. He always makes a statement. Every time these things happen, nothing happens. So it is obvious nobody takes him seriously with that. Even the military chiefs, I don’t think they bother themselves.
‘This is about the umpteenth time that we are hearing the President giving a marching order. Throughout the Buratai time as the Chief of Army Staff, he was always giving marching orders so he has given just another one.’
Nigeria has been experiencing a series of security threats ranging from terrorism, banditry, militancy, cultism among others in several parts of the country.
The country has been battling terrorism for more than a decade which has killed 36,000 people and displaced hundreds of thousands in the northeast.
