- Senator Abdullahi Adamu says those hitting up the political space are jealous of Buhari's achievements
- Adamu calls some politicians democratic dissidents who see no good in President Buhari
- He further reveals that recent defectors from the APC saw defeat waiting for them
Senator Abduallhi Adamu from Nasarawa West has attributed the recent developments in the country’s political space to acts of jealousy over President Muhammadu Buhari’s achievements.
Adamu, a senator on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said this when he addressed the party’s stakeholders at an expanded meeting on Thursday, August 2, in Lafia.
“We do know for a fact that what is happening in the political space of this country is the handiwork of democratic dissidents who do not see good in what President Buhari is doing.
“They are being goaded by people who are highly jealous of Buhari’s achievements in terms projects, social welfare and well-being of the people; achievements those before him failed to deliver,” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Adamu reaffirmed the determination of the people of Nasarawa state to Buhari’s re-election bid.
He said those defecting from the APC had seen the defeat awaiting them in 2019 and had to look for who to blame for their misfortune.
The senator alleged that said some politicians were behind the security challenges in parts of the country in order to create an atmosphere of uncertainty and fear.
He further said that their aim was to make people believe that Buhari was failing in terms of security.
The senator, however, urged the stakeholders not to relent until the re-election bid of the president was realised.

“It is not enough to seat in our abode and say it would happen; it would only happen when we match our commitment with action,” he said while also expressing optimism that the APC, with quality leadership, would reclaim Benue and Kwara states from the opposition in 2019.
