Nigerians Voted For Buhari But He Is Not The One In Charge Now — Saraki

On September 19, 2018 102 Comments

Senate President Bukola Saraki says though Nigerians voted for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015, a cabal is now in charge of the country.

Saraki who is one of the presidential aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said this when he visited members of the party in Oyo state, to solicit support ahead of the primary election.

He alleged that Nigeria lacked the progress it deserved because voting patterns were determined by religion, language and ethnicity.

“Over the years, we have made mistakes in electing people based on sentiment. Yes, it is time we corrected it,” he said.

“We will correct it because we are capable. Over the years, we have voted for people based on religion, the language they speak and where they came from in Nigeria. We need people who have the courage, capacity, ability and determination.

“I have shown over the years, particularly in the recent years that one has the opportunity of leadership, that I have the capacity to take Nigeria forward. The countries that have done well did so not by bringing leaders by chance but because they looked for capable leaders. It is time to pick such a leader.

“The President we have now does not understand leadership. We have endured him for more than three years but it is the same thing. Nigerians voted for him but a cabal is ruling the country. That is not what democracy means. This time, let us look for who can do it. In Nigeria today, we do not have unity. What we need in the present world is a digital President.”

Saraki said some of the world leaders who visited Buhari left after few hours because their host did not understand their mission or contributed to the discussion as expected.

“When your president sits with world presidents, he should be able to understand what they are saying,” he said.

“That is why presidents who have visited the country did not stay more than a few hours. But when they know that their host understands them, they will stay longer and explore investment opportunities in Nigeria.”

    This is a man who will disregard all the constitutional provisions and deep hands into the Federal reserve and pull out billions of dollars, time and upon time to fund Book haram they intentionally set up to Islamize Nigeria. Maybe unenlightened Nigeria are really sorrythinking the man was actually spending the money in the north east. No, he is diverting all including the one he recovered from the looters to Islamic banks for their agendas.

    It’s only a backward nation like Nigeria will desire to have a murderous President. He knows nothing about new world order, politically and socially. How can Nigeria advance when they have such a person? Well is good to see his latest strategy were he has embarked on selling all the oil block from the Biafra land to develop only the Fulani region. First, he appointed all of them into a sensitive positions and now he want to sell all the assets from the South.
