Senator Abdullahi Adamu, Representing Nasarawa West Senatorial District, has accused political leaders of Southeast extraction of stoking the fire of insecurity in the Southeastern part of Nigeria as they didn’t see anything good coming their way.
Senator Adamu, a two term Governor of Nasarawa State between 1999-2007 in an interview alleged that the reason for the strong agitation coming from the region was targeted at the 2023 presidency.
“I am sorry to say that while I welcome such a development, I am not yet convinced. We have to give it time and see what happens. People just don’t sit down and make a pronouncement and think we should go by it. We are wishing Nigeria’s situation disappears.
“I believe the issue of insecurity in the South East and the pronouncements by their political leaders is because they did not see anything good coming their way. Sometimes you will just wonder what they are complaining about.
“If you take all the strategic offices in this country, you would see the Igbo, Yoruba and people from the South South. This hullabaloo is about the presidency.
“To them, why must any northerner take the presidential seat after Buhari? I don’t beat about the bush; I am old enough. And I know Nigeria enough to know that at the moment a pronouncement is made, I want to see it pushed to test.
Speaking about the leadership of the National Assembly, Senator Adamu said “as much as possible, the leadership of the National Assembly has tried to be bipartisan. They have tried to carry everybody along as much as possible.
