A Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani, said on Monday that it was morally wrong for the Peoples Democratic Party to say that President Muhammadu Buhari was too slow in just one month into his four-year administration.
He said the PDP antic was to rush President Buhari into the ‘landmines’ it had set for the administration after its painful defeat at the March 28 presidential election.
According to him, the PDP government had destroyed Nigeria and its economy as well as impoverished Nigerians in the last 16 years of ruling the country.
Sani spoke to newsmen shortly after his visit to the National Library, Kaduna.
Sani, a pro-democracy activist, said President Buhari was too experienced to fall into the ‘devilish’ tricks of the PDP, noting that the President’s current pace was deliberate and calculated to work in the best interest of Nigerians.
The former president of the Civil Rights Congress of Nigeria added that the Jonathan administration laid a lot of land mines, snares and traps for President Buhari.
Sani said, “President Muhammadu Buhari’s pace is not deliberate, but a calculated and deliberate acts to ensure that the steps he takes are in the best interest of Nigeria and in the best interest of our people.
“The Jonathan administration had laid a lot of landmines, snares and traps. You can’t rush President Muhammadu Buhari into such landmines, snares and traps. His critics want him to fall into such traps.
“Those who are criticising Mr. President are the agents of the past. However, despite the challenges of the APC, Nigeria cannot go back to the PDP. The PDP represents evil and we are paying the price of allowing the PDP to rule Nigeria for 16 years.
”It is only people that are shameless that will be critical of the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari, after piling such enormous debt for our country; after looting the treasury of our country; after allowing blood to flow in all parts of Nigeria. Now, you are talking about the government being slow. I think they are very unfair.”
