Abaribe Slams Buhari’s Govt, Says Nigeria Is In A State Incompetence
Former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, has lamented the worsening insecurity in the country, saying Nigeria is in a state of incompetence.
Naija News recalls that Senators elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had on Wednesday walked out of the Senate during plenary following the refusal of Senate President Ahmad Lawan to allow for the passing of a motion on insecurity.
The lawmakers threatened to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari if he fails to address the security challenges in the country within the given time.
Speaking during an appearance on Channels Television, he stated that the Federal Government has not taken decisive measures to stem the tide of insecurity.
Abaribe, an All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) lawmaker representing Abia South Senatorial District, said the Upper Legislative Chamber has been branded as a ‘compliant Senate’ because it approves everything brought to it by the Executive arm.
“The bottom line today that we have reached is that we are in a state of sheer incompetence. There is no other way you can mention it,” he said.
On Buhari’s decision to summon Nigeria’s Service Chiefs, Senator Abaribe stated that the president will only gather the service chiefs wherever an attack happens, wondering about the outcome of previously held security meetings.
He said, “How many security meetings have we had? Every time something happens, you gather all of them and say you are going to have another security meeting. Nothing comes out of it, it gets worse.
“Asking the rest of us to just fold our hands for this administration to derail this country, I don’t think it is in anybody’s interest.
“We have seen that they can no longer do anything. How could a President, after what happened in Kuje, go there and let the whole world know (that) something is wrong. What has happened since then?”
