– Senator Joseph Waku says Nigerians may reject APC in 2019 if the party fails to deliver on its promises
– He says President Buhari has good intentions, but there saboteurs around who do not want him to succeed
– The former lawmaker describes the proposed sale of national assets as primitive
Senator Joseph Waku, a former chairman, Senate Committee on Water Resources, has said Nigerians may reject All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019 if the party failed to deliver on its promises, Vanguard reports.
According to the former senator representing Benue North-West, President Muhammadu Buhari has good intentions, but there saboteurs around who do not want him to succeed.
Waku, who recently turned 70, said: “The ruling APC should not to take Nigerians for granted over the promises they made, because failure to meet their expectations may lead to rejection of the party in 2019.
“My sincere worry is that President Muhammadu Buhari has good intentions, but there are many saboteurs around who do not want him to succeed.”
On the proposed sale of national assets, Waku described it as primitive, saying “you cannot sell off the sovereignty of the country. How much are the national assets worth? Can their sale solve the present problems?
“There is no country in the world that can run without foreign loans to be repaid within agreed terms. Some Nigerians who have tried brining foreign partners have been blocked.
“There are lots of opportunities we can exploit to get out of this recession within the shortest possible period. But it all depends on the willingness of the federal government to exploit such.”
However, he commended the federal government for dropping the case of forgery against the Senate president Bukola Saraki and his deputy Ike Ekweremadu.
NAIJ.com recalls that Waku had last recently said that without Buhari, the APC would lose the 2019 general election.
