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.”

Senator Joseph Waku says Nigerians may reject Buhari and the APC in 2019 if the party fails to deliver on its promises.

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.

Waku, who served as a senator in the fourth republic and is a chieftain of the APC noted that his party won the 2015 election because most of the politicians on the platform, rode on Buhari’s honesty to win the 2015 election.
