‘Buhari not fit to lead a country’ – Apugo
. Says APC has no economic agenda, only good at propaganda
By Steve Oko
Prince Benjamin Apugo is a member of the All Progressive Congress, APC, but his son, Hon. Chukwudi Apugo, a member of the Abia State House of Assembly, sees no attraction in APC.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP lawmaker representing Umuahia East state constituency has described President Muhammadu Buhari as unfit to lead any country.
Apugo who stated this at a press conference in his Ibeku country home said Buhari was bereft of any business idea on how to navigate Nigeria out of economic doldrum.
He said the ruling APC government had no economic agenda but only good at propaganda.
Apugo advised Nigerians not to repeat the mistake of 2015 when APC came to power by deception.
He warned that Nigeria might not survive another tenure of “APC’s misrule, ineptitude and visionless government”.
The House Committee Chairman on Public Accounts and Anti-corruption urged Nigerians to vote for the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Peter Obi, for quick economic recovery.
” The only way to go is Atiku if we want to survive as a country. If we still want to see Nigeria after May 29, we must vote for Atiku and Obi because they have distinguished themselves as successful business managers capable of fixing Nigeria.
“For Buhari to tell us in January that this year will be tough, imagine what will happen by June. That means , his ‘Next Level ‘ is hardship!
“Nigeria must vote out this inept government and return PDP to power to rescue the country from total collapse “, he warned.
Apugo expressed confidence that PDP would sweep the 2019 polls should Nigerians queue behind its candidates at all levels.
The lawmaker who boasted that his achievements so far would guarantee his re-election, said he is no longer campaigning for himself but for his party as his people have already adopted him as their consensus candidate.
He enumerated some of his achievements to include building of civic halls for over ten communities including : Isiadu, Umuezeala, Mgbaja, Ata, Umuagu, Umuakali, etc; donation and energising of electricity transformers to communities; and sinking of water bore holes “particularly in Amuzuolo where I spent over N4.5 million until we got water for them “.
Others include disbursement of N30,000 bursary to over 100 students in his constituency, donation of school bags to thousands of pupils, placement of over 70 indigent persons on monthly stipends ranging from N15000 to N50000.
He noted that apart from distributing empowerment items to his constituents, he defrayed the medical bill of an indigent woman from the constituency who was detained for one year at the Federal Medical Center Umuahia for her inability to settle her N700,000 bill.
Apugo said that besides his legislative roles, he would focus more in the academic development of youths in his constituency if re-elected.
The lawmaker who said he would not seek third term hinted he might return to business upon retirement from politics.
