APC Has Not Failed Because Buhari Has Done Very Well – Senator Abdullahi



Senate Spokesperson, Senator Sabi Abdullahi

The spokesman of the Senate, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, has stated that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has done a great job since it came into power in 2015.

He refuted comments made by Pentecostal Pastor, Tunde Bakare, who said the incumbent government has failed the nation.

Senator Abdullahi, acknowledging Bakare’s right to speak, maintained that Buhari’s government has done the best it could considering the situation on ground.

Abdullahi made the clarification known on Monday, during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today.

The senator said: “Pastor Tunde Bakare is totally entitled to his opinion and he has voiced his opinion but as far as I am concerned, APC has not failed. The number of years we have spent, looking at the problems we met on the ground, I think we are doing very well in trying to get Nigeria back on track.

“We are not saying that we couldn’t have done more but then, what we have done so far is within the context of the situation we have found ourselves and we have done very well,” he stressed.

He also addressed other issues regarding the state of the polity, from the recent herdsmen killings to the passage of the 2018 Appropriation Bill.

Also speaking on the recent herdsmen attacks faced by some states in the nation, Abdullahi said: “The Senate and indeed the National Assembly is equally very worried about the whole situation and let me reiterate the fact that as representatives of the people, any single part of this country that is affected by any form of crisis definitely get the National Assembly worried and let me say that for us, we are more than ever ready to respond accordingly based on the mandate given to us as legislators”.
