Gali Umar Na’Abba, a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Board of Trustees, BoT, and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, has said President Muhammadu Buhari has not added any value to Nigeria’s democracy since he became president.
Na’Abba, who spoke while featuring on Osasu show alleged that Buhari was running a “man-man” government, adding that he does not consult party members before taking decisions because he “considers them to be evil”.
The former Speaker noted that the trustees will stop Buhari from seeking re-election in 2019.
According to Na’Abba, “I had the occasion to sit down with the president and tell him this is what is wrong. And all he told me was that things were wrong before but now, with his election, everything is right now. And I was very very disappointed.
“A lot of people campaigned, supported him and elected him for one reason or the other. I decided to move back to APC from PDP to support him because from his utterances, I believed he wanted to add value to democracy.
“And this is three years into his administration, he doesn’t work with the party, he regards party members as evil, he doesn’t consult with anybody in the party and I am a member of the board of trustees, even though we don’t have it officially.
“The last time we had a meeting with such a board was in February 2016. Such meeting was called again in November 2017 when he decided he wanted to get re-elected and he needed us.
“He promised to reconstitute the board. Before, he refused to do that because he thought politicians are responsible for all the evils in this country. He also promised to increase the number of ministers.
“In a nutshell, the president has not added value to democracy by an inch.”
