Nige­ri­ans have no rea­son to re-elect Buhari – se­na­tor

The Punch - - POLITICS TODAY - Abio­dun Nejo, Ado Ek­iti

sE­NATE Mi­nor­ity Leader, Bio­dun Olu­jimi, has said that Nige­ri­ans have no rea­son to re-elect Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari who is the All Pro­gres­sives Congress’ pres­i­den­tial can­di­date in the 2019 gen­eral elec­tions.

Olu­jimi, who is the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party’s sen­a­to­rial can­di­date for Ek­iti south, said Nige­ri­ans should vote in 2019 based on past record and abil­ity to de­liver.

The se­na­tor who was rep­re­sented by her cam­paign di­rec­tor, sanya Adesua, spoke at Ikere Ek­iti, Ek­iti state, on Thurs­day dur­ing the dis­tri­bu­tion of Math­e­mat­ics and English Lan­guage text­books to pub­lic sec­ondary schools in her sen­a­to­rial district.

she said, “Pres­i­dent Buhari does not have any­thing to cam­paign with as his achieve­ments in the last four years. Maybe that is why he has been find­ing it dif­fi­cult to ad­dress Nige­ri­ans.

“The sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try at present re­quires a leader with vi­sion and abil­ity to put things right. That is where the PDP pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, Al­haji Atiku Abubakar, comes in.

“For now, we have a Pres­i­dent who can­not ad­dress Nige­ri­ans. We have a Pres­i­dent with iden­tity cri­sis.

“Eval­u­ate the Buhar­iled gov­ern­ment for the past four years – look at the con­di­tion of roads across the coun­try, look at elec­tric­ity sup­ply, con­sider wa­ter sit­u­a­tion and the grow­ing in­se­cu­rity – you will dis­cover that there is no rea­son to vote for Buhari.”

she said the dis­tri­bu­tion of the ma­te­ri­als was not about elec­tion.

she said the ges­ture was about her de­sire to con­tinue to touch lives.
