A former Senator representing Benue North-West in the National Assembly, Chief Joseph Waku, has stated that from the look of things, Nigerians are done with the All Progressives Congress.


According to him, the country may chase out the ruling party in 2019 just the way PDP was ousted from power in 2015.

He regretted that the president might have good intentions for the country but that some saboteurs were frustrating his efforts.

Waku, who recently clocked 70, spoke yesterday while warning the ruling party not to take Nigerians for granted after making several promises and leaving the people with so much expectations.

He said: “The ruling APC should not 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.”

He lauded the federal government for dropping the case of forgery against the Senate president and his deputy.
