- Senate President Bukola Saraki decried the level of poverty in Nigeria
- Saraki blamed the poverty in the country on the present government
- The Senate president blamed the ruling party, APC and the Buhari-led government for ignoring the promises made to Nigerians
Senate President Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday, December 25, said times are very hard for Nigerians as a result of the level of poverty in the country. The Senate president also claimed that the All Progressives Congress and the present government has failed Nigerians.
Saraki said this on a live programme aired by four radio stations: Radio Nigeria (Harmony FM) Idofian, Royal FM, Sobi FM and Radio Kwara.
Saraki said: “Times are very hard for the masses as a result of the level of poverty in the country.
“Without sentiment, the present government has failed Nigerians. They must therefore ensure they vote for a leader that will address poverty and revive the economy.
“Nigerians will vote in February 2019 but the business community has already passed a vote of no confidence in this present government.
“I therefore urge Nigerians to vote out this government and vote a man (Atiku) that will restore investors’ confidence and get Nigeria working again. It is only one party that loves the common people and that is our party, the PDP.
“I am in politics to serve my people. When I campaigned in 2015, I pledged to Nigerians that my former party, APC, will address the issues of insecurity, unemployment and poverty but unfortunately the party has failed on all these three scorelines.
“I thank God Almighty for the position that was given to Kwara as the number three citizen.
“We have cut across our zonal intervention projects in the state which wasn’t possible in the first four years as a floor member at the 7th Senate because ranking members add more value to the community/constituency.”
