Senator Shehu Sani says President Muhammadu Buhari would have protested if the government of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan piled up debts like he has done.
In an ongoing Twitter Spaces session with newsmen, the Senator who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th assembly rated the government lowly.
“Never at a time as a country has Nigeria been in so much debt. We keep borrowing from everywhere,” he said.
He said whatever Buhari thought he had achieved would mean nothing if Nigerians are not secure.
Sani also accused Buhari of keeping incompetent in office, wondering why he cannot reshuffle his cabinet.
As a presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2014, Buhari led thousands of party supporters in a protest rally in Abuja.
The protesters had accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-led Federal Government of playing politics with Boko Haram.
They also accused President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP of gross incompetence and unprecedented display of impunity.
The protest tagged ‘Salvation Rally’, was aimed at drawing global attention to what the opposition party described as a deliberate hijack of the Nigeria police and other security agencies by the ruling PDP.
