Ex-Minority Leader, Abaribe Attacks Buhari Over Alleged Marginalization

The former Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe has lamented the leadership style of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The lawmaker accused the incumbent government of being fairer to the Northern region of the country than other regions.

Naija News understands that Abaribe had just resigned as the Senate Minority Leader last week. His resignation from the position was following his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

Featuring on Arise TV, the lawmaker said the current administration had downplayed non-northern region.

He said President Buhari’s administration marginalized other regions, stressing that the president was totally unfair to citizens who are not from what he claims is his own place.

“At the time I was saying that I was talking for the rest of Nigeria and I will continue to advocate for Nigeria,” he said.

Abaribe also explained why he ignored the All Progressives Congress, APC, after he dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. The lawmaker explained that he opted for APGA due to the party’s ideology.

He said: “If I was non-ideological, I would go to APC. If you have the major ideology, it will now be the conservative APC and the progressives non-APC.

“I’m still in the non-APC, so I’m ideologically inclined that I will not be part of the hegemony.”
