You can’t give what you don’t have, you can't keep telling Nigerians things they have heard – Saraki attacks Buhari

You can’t give what you don’t have, you can't keep telling Nigerians things they have heard – Saraki attacks Buhari

The Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has said that
Nigeria is more divided under the present administration led by
President Muhammadu Buhari who, according to him, cannot give what he
(Buhari) does not have, can't keep telling Nigerians what they have alredy heard.

Saraki made this known while addressing the Governor of Ebonyi state,
Chief David Umahi and stakeholders of the state during his
consultations for next year’s presidential election, which took place at
the Dr. Sam Egwu lodge in Abakaliki.

He said that Nigeria was presently at crossroads, stressing that he
will address the growing impunity in Nigeria if giving the chance to
become the PDP presidential flag bearer in the forthcoming 2019 general

The Senate President stated that Nigeria has never been so divided
like it is now and lamented that the unity the nation’s founding fathers
propagated was at the verge of collapse, while the country is drifting
into anarchy.

“As you endorse your governor, you will also endorse me as your
presidential candidate. It is a trying time for our nation. The country
is more divided than it used to be.

“We know about the insecurity situation. We must ask our self how did
we get here and who can bring us out? You cannot give what you don’t
have. We must create enabling environment for leadership capacity.

“There is a high level of un-inclusiveness in the country. We must
choose leaders that have capacity to move the country forward. What you
are seeing in Ebonyi is not by chance, it is because your governor has
capacity, that is why you are witnessing development. How then can you
choose a man with capacity in your state without choosing also a leader
with capacity at the national level?

“We fight poverty, we will fight corruption too and not to do a
selective corruption fight. We will develop solid minerals in Ebonyi
State. We will bring private investors into the country and turn around
youth involvement in governance by bringing youths to governance,” he

In a remark, the governor, Chief David Umahi, who was presented with
the governorship nomination form purchased by the members of the State
Executive Council described Senator Saraki as a refined Nigerian and
defender of democracy as well as friend of Ebonyi State.

Umahi reiterated his earlier promise to return power to Abakaliki
bloc in 2023 after his second term, adding that his administration
remains focused on the developmental agenda.

“We will handover a state that is most beautiful, best economy and richest in the country,” he assured.

The Governor commended Saraki for standing firm over the various
crisis he faced, and urged that the National Assembly must work together
to unite the country and turn its fortunes for the best.

He called on the Senate President to look into cost of projects in
the country to stop profligacy in the execution of projects in the

Umahi added that the South-East zone will be ready to support anybody
who will be ready to recognize the rights and needs of the people of
the zone.
