A Senator representing Bauchi Central, Isah Misau, has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari for for not being proactive towards attending to urgent national issues.
Mr Misau, who spoke during a committee meeting at the National Assembly, berated the president for thinking of seeking re-election in 2019 despite the way things have gone bad in the country.
The lawmaker lamented that it took constant reminder by the Nigerian media and criticisms of the APC government before Mr Buhari decided to visit states where killings have been recorded.
He said: “It is painful. We don’t have hospitals, we don’t have schools; nothing is working in the country and all of us are saying 2019.
“What is 2019? Are we sure we are going to reach 2019? it’s so bad. Things are happening.
“Leaders, you have to beg them before they go and see what is happening in places.
“Media have to make a lot of noise before leaders go there. What kind of a country is this?
“Today as a Senator, you get frustrated, talk less of somebody that have no job.”
