Buhari Has Lost it, Says Former Senate Chief Whip


Some chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lambasted President Buhari over his comments that he inherited nothing from PDP administrations of former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, late Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan.

Reacting, former Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Rowland Owie, bemoaned: “The statement shows that President Buhari has lost it all because his failure in government will no longer deserve the sympathy of Nigerians. It is unfortunate.

“Yes he is fighting corruption but even at that we have our reservations. His method of fighting corruption has raised a lot of questions. He may be passionate but many people think he is being selective.

“Examples abound. In Benue state for instance, anybody who decamped to APC is now a saint. He is not being sincere in several other ways and we don’t think he is being sincere in his assertion. He is dodging his responsibilities.”

Also commenting, former PDP National Publicity Secretary and Minister of Information, John Odey, said: “I want to believe that he was reported out of context because no sitting president can make such a sweeping statement.

“Government is a continuum and I strongly believe he never meant that he did not inherit anything from previous governments since 1999.

“Maybe, he meant that if previous administrations were prudent in investing and diversifying the economy, we would have been better
