Senator attacks Buhari, says president ‘never knows anything’

President Muhammadu Buhari

A Peoples Democratic Party Senator, Enyinnaya Abaribe, who is representing Abia East, has criticised President Muhammadu Buhari for constantly denying responsibility when things go wrong.

Mr Abaribe, who was contributing to a motion on the recent violence killings in Kogi state by suspected herdsmen, said Mr Buhari is always in the habit of saying, “I don’t know.”

The outpour followed a motion raised by Atai Aidoko Ali on the activities of armed bandits who killed 32 people in two local government areas of Kogi state on Wednesday.

Mr Abaribe said: “I agree with the senate leader who said this is a moment where we have to work with the executive.

“The only thing I don’t agree with is, this executive that you want us to work with, have they accepted that they are the people that have responsibility?

“We have a president that will say I don’t know my IG didn’t even follow my order. A president that says I didn’t even know when this happened. Every little thing he doesn’t know.”
