ABUJA – Two members of the National Assembly, Senators Rafiu Ibrahim and Isah Misau, have asked the leadership of the All Progressive Congress to give its stewardship since the party assumed power on May 29, 2015.
The two lawmakers also said blaming Senate President Bukola Saraki for the government’s failure had made him the current issue in the nation’s politics.
The two Peoples Democratic Party senators in a joint statement on Wednesday queried whether the APC was being fair to Nigeria by focusing on the Senate President and making him the subject of all discussions instead of showing Nigerians its scorecard in the last 38 months that it had been in power.
According to them, “this is the first time in the history of the country that the ruling party will leave the issue of its achievements and start blaming its failure on just one individual, no matter who the individual is. It is also the first time a ruling party will plan to hoodwink Nigerians by saying everything wrong under its watch is due to the action and inaction of one man.
They posited that all the national leaders of the APC on daily basis continued to abuse Saraki over their party’s non-performance.
“APC has devoted all the time and knowledge of their national chairman, national leader, publicity secretary, four senators and two presidential aides to the daily abuse of Saraki, such that it appears as if Saraki is the only politician in Nigeria today.
“They have made Saraki the issue in Nigerian politics today. If these individuals devote the energy they are exerting on Saraki to finding solutions to the security problem, economic crisis and collapse of infrastructure, among them, they will come out with some action plan, except they are only skillful in mischief making.”
