PRESIDENT WASN’T PREPARED TO LEAD NIGERIA-REPS
A member of the House of Representatives, representing Ikwo/ Ezza South federal constituency of Ebonyi State, Hon. Lazarus Ogbe has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari was not prepared for leadership.He charged Buhari to wake up to his responsibilities and improve the lives of Nigerians.
Ogbe said this while speaking with journalists at his country home at Onueke in Ezza South Local Government Area of the state.
According to him, “From the speech of the President, we have been inundated again with rhetoric, from 2015 that the change mantra came into being; it has been stories and stories.
“2016 came, they were still preparing for governance. 2017 came, the world stood still waiting for another chapter of governance and very soon, it will be three years of the administration and no meaningful impact on the lives of the masses.
“Nearly everything in the country has changed for the worse. Is it the transportation system? The price of transportation has skyrocketed. Is it food items in the market? The prices have changed negatively. We pray that the President of the country should wakeup to his responsibilities.
“The change mantra should not be on the lips and on pages of newspaper. It should actually impact on the lives of the people positively.
“The economy of the country has nosedived from what it used to be when former President Goodluck Jonathan handed over and we cannot continue to blame the past administration.
“Government, they say, is a continuum. Bring in your own ideas and those things you had in mind; that you told Nigerians you would bring to their door steps. That is what we are saying.
“For me, I am a member of the PDP, the great PDP, and I know that if we get power back at the centre, we will give Nigerians the needed democratic dividends and they will be happy about it.
“2018 is a very good year for APC to change and bring live back to Nigerians. But in all, I think they are not prepared for governance. For us in the PDP that knows how to govern a country as large as Nigeria, we will be back on the saddle of leadership,” he stressed.
