Avarice Blast Buhari, Says: We are in a State of Sheer Incompetence

Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, a former minority leader in the Senate, defended calls for President Muhammadu Buhari’s impeachment on Wednesday by arguing that the Federal Government has not taken meaningful action to reverse the tide of insecurity.

Abaribe, an All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) lawmaker representing Abia South Senatorial District, stated this when he appeared on Channels Television’s Politics Today. He noted that the nation is in a state of incompetence following the worsening insecurity in the country.

He said the upper chamber had been branded a ‘compliant Senate’ because it approves everything the Executive brings to it.

“The bottom line today that we have reached is that we are in a state of sheer incompetence. There is no other way you can mention it,” the lawmaker said.

In response to the Thursday security gathering with service chiefs, Abaribe criticised President Buhari’s strategy for combating insecurity.

He questioned the outcome of earlier security meetings and said that the President would only call a conference of the service chiefs in the event of an attack.

“How many security meetings have we had? Every time something happens, you gather all of them and say you will have another security meeting. Nothing comes out of it. It gets worse.

“Asking the rest of us to fold our hands for this administration to derail this country, I don’t think it is in anybody’s interest.

“We have seen that they can no longer do anything. How could a President, after what happened in Kuje, go there and let the whole world know (that) something is wrong. What has happened since then?” he queried.

Terrorists had continued to carry out assaults, including the most recent one in Abuja on Monday night, where at least three soldiers were murdered when the gunmen ambushed the Presidential Brigade Guards while they were on patrol along the Kubwa-Bwari Road in the capital.
