Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s ally, Alhaji Kawu Baraje has criticised the All Progressives Congress (APC), over what he described as the party’s poor performance.
Punch reports that Baraje said Nigerians are not happy with the APC, and called on the Buhari led administration to address the sufferings of the people.
He also advised the party not to repeat the mistakes of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Baraje said “I belong to the group that is not very satisfied with the performance of the party; not only because the Senate President is having a very serious political issue, but because there are other cases and instances where we are not happy with the performance of our party.”
He also said “I am not a prophet of doom, neither am I a political prostitute. Are you happy going to queue up for up to two to three hours? Are you happy that electricity is not functioning well and people sleep in darkness?
“What we are saying is that majority of Nigerians are not happy and we need to make them happy.
“Majority of Nigerians are suffering and we need to make our impact felt by addressing the suffering of the masses.”
Baraje also threatened to leave the party, saying the APC lacks focus and is distracted.
Baraje said, “The PDP made me. I was the National Secretary and later become the National Chairman of the PDP. I made my mark. If I have to be grateful to any political party, I think, it is the PDP.
“So, if I can leave that party, then you will know that the party had gone contrary seriously against my principles of life.
“If I can leave the PDP because of impunity, lack of respect for the rule of law; then do I want to continue in another party that way? But it has not got to that level. That is why we are sounding a note of warning that gradually some of these problems are creeping into the APC. And we must warn ourselves.”
Many Nigerians, on social media, constantly express their anger and frustration at the current situation of the country.
Alhaji Kawu Baraje once served as the acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
