‘Buhari’s inexperience caused Senate crisis’

Lack of experience by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal executive council (FEC) caused the crisis rocking the Nigerian Senate, Senate President Bukola Saraki says.

Saraki made this known on Thursday at the Banquet Hall of Ebonyi State Government House in Abakaliki where he was received by the state governor, Engr. David Umahi and stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He said the division under President Buhari-led government has never been witnessed in the country since independence.

He appealed to the state PDP’s delegates to vote for him to enable him fly the party’s presidential flag in the forthcoming party primaries.

He assured that if elected as president would, he address the problem of unemployment and insecurity ravaging the nation and restructure the nation.

“Today, we are at a crossroad trying to unite this country; we’re at a time we take important decision for the future of this country.

“Having served as governor for eight years and now as Senate President where l equally provides leadership for the people, l have shown capacity. The cause of the problem that we are having at the Senate is because members of the federal executive council lack experience; they forget that the Executives and the Senate must work together.

“You all know that this country have never been divided like this before; you all know that security challenges is very high; you all know the issue of inclusion, you all know the challenges of freedom, injustice, and the inability to express our constitutional rights,” he said.

The Senate President noted that “the only way to get it right is when we utilize the opportunity of 2019 elections and vote for leaders with the capacity to lead the nation.”

Saraki, who was also seeking the support of the people of South East, promised to create enabling environment for business to strive in the region, if elected president in 2019.
