APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole has stated that the administration of President Buhari has no excuses to fail in its second term.
This was after the party’s anointed candidates emerged victorious at the National Assembly leadership elections.
Ahmad Lawan emerged senate president while Ovie Omo-Agege became the deputy senate president. In the lower chambers, Femi Gbajabiamila became the Speaker of the House of Representatives while Idris Waise deputized him.
With the APC having its way, Oshiomhole spoke concerning the mischief of 2015 which saw APC anointed candidates losing out:
“and I am happy that it has been settled.”
“Nigerians with their eyes open gave the APC the executive, they also gave us overwhelming majority in the two arms of the National Assembly,” Oshiomhole said.
“And I think in doing that they also expect that this time around, APC would have no excuse not to deliver.
“We can’t say we are being blocked by the parliament; parliament is ours and those who don’t believe in change cannot be entrusted with the challenge of managing the change.
“And that is why I said we must give the position of responsibility to those who believe in our change agenda. So today, that has been translated.
“We now have no excuse not to deliver on security, not to deliver on the economy and not to deliver on prosperity because that is what the ordinary man voted for and they are our constituents.
“You can just imagine how I feel like a mother who has been carrying babies and now, we are on the verge of delivering twins in the two chambers of National Assembly.
“So we must exercise our rights with a sense of responsibility and the ultimate objective must be to what extent does these actions impact on the welfare of the Nigerian people.”
