A Nigerian senator has condemned President Buhari’s habit of always denying knowledge of things going wrong in his government.
A member of the Peoples Democratic Party Senator, Enyinnaya Abaribe representing Abia East, has criticised President Muhammadu Buhari for constantly denying responsibility when things go wrong in his government.
The lawmaker made this known while contributing to a motion on the recent violence killings in Kogi state by suspected herdsmen. He said Mr Buhari is always in the habit of saying, “I don’t know.”
The outpour followed a motion raised by Atai Aidoko Ali on the activities of armed bandits who killed 32 people in two local government areas of Kogi state on Wednesday.
Mr Abaribe said: “I agree with the senate leader who said this is a moment where we have to work with the executive.
“The only thing I don’t agree with is, this executive that you want us to work with, have they accepted that they are the people that have responsibility?
“We have a president that will say I don’t know my IG didn’t even follow my order. A president that says I didn’t even know when this happened. Every little thing he doesn’t know.”
