Senate responds to Tunde Bakare’s attack on Buhari, insists President has not failed
Pastor Bakare, on Monday attacked Buhari over corruption and unemployment rate in the country.
Reacting, Spokesman to the senate, Senator Sabi Abdullahi told Channels Tv that Buhari has performed very well and has not failed Nigerians compared to the problems his government inherited from PDP administration.
“Pastor Tunde Bakare is totally entitled to his opinion and he has voiced his opinion but as far as I am concerned, APC has not failed.
“The number of years we have spent, looking at the problems we met on the ground, I think we are doing very well in trying to get Nigeria back on track.
“We are not saying that we couldn’t have done more but then, what we have done so far is within the context of the situation we have found ourselves and we have done very well.”
Speaking on herdsmen attacks in some states of the nation, Abdullahi said the National Assembly was worried about the situation.
“The Senate and indeed the National Assembly is equally very worried about the whole situation and let me reiterate the fact that as representatives of the people, any single part of this country that is affected by any form of crisis definitely gets the National Assembly worried and let me say that for us, we are more than ever ready to respond accordingly based on the mandate given to us as legislators,” he added.
