Buhari dont have any right over me – Abaribe

The lawmaker representing Abia South senatorial district at the
National Assembly, Enyinnaya Abaribe, a critic of President
Muhammadu Buhari, has revealed that he is not afraid of speaking
against Buhari because those who would return him to the Senate
in 2019 are not from the North, neither are they in the Presidential

Recall that Abaribe had last month sparked an uproar in the upper
legislative chamber when he declared that President Buhari was

Following an excuse given by Buhari in London that the herdsmen
on killing spree in Nigeria were allegedly trained by the late Libyan
revolutionary leader, Muammar Gaddafi, Abaribe told his
colleagues, “This validates my earlier position that the president
has failed to take charge of the protection of lives and property
across the country as enshrined in our constitution to be his
primary responsibility. I, so make bold to say that the president is

Speaking lately in a local radio programme in Aba, the Abia South
lawmaker said, “I fear nothing. The first thing they will say is you
will not come back, but the people who will vote for me are from
the South East and not from the North or inside the villa. The other
thing is that they think they will investigate you and all that. Well, I
don’t do contract and don’t engage in anything outside of my
legitimate duties. You cannot hold me for engaging in fraud. EFCC
cannot touch me.”

Abaribe further stated that the All Progressives Congress, APC-led
government has thrown Nigeria into huge debts and questioned
Buhari’s sincerity on the anti graft war. His words, “Buhari’s
government came on the platform of deceit. They deceived
Nigerians into thinking that they were coming as saviour and they
made certain assertions that Nigerian believed.

“What we have are people who said, first, we are going to deal
with the matter of security. Then, they couldn’t deal with it. When
they found out they couldn’t, they turned around and said we have
technically defeated Boko Haram. When they found that it couldn’t
happen, all of a sudden, they stage-managed a kidnap, and
suddenly, they released the people
“Within this period, we had the whole Benue Valley starting from
Taraba to Nasarawa following the Benue River, attacked by
unknown persons. People are being killed every day. The Senate
has compiled a list of people who have been killed. Up to a
thousand, two to three million people are away in the IDPs and we
are not in a war.

“Our economy is suffering because of their bad policies. And once
they failed, they said Nigeria was at the brink before we came.
They are now telling us that within three years, we cannot undo the
bad things that PDP did in 16 years.

Is it right for Federal Government to dialogue and compensate killer herdsmen and bandits?
