Senator Isa Misau who represents Bauchi central in the Senate has unloaded on President Muhammadu Buhari over his recent appointments.
Reacting to reports about the Newly appointed Director General of the Nigerian Intelligence Agency, NIA, Ahmed Abubakar, Misau says the appointment was shrouded in Favouritism. He berated the new NIA chief, saying that he was incompetent and failed promotional examinations.
“Today, the DG NIA that was just appointed, is he qualified to be there? He’s not qualified. This is the person that failed two exams, we know. He failed two exams and just because he is close to people taking decisions, he was appointed.
“So many incompetent people are holding so many positions. Fifty per cent of the ministers are not performing. Since the president assumed office he has not taken any decision to move this country. Today we are seeing it and everybody is avoiding it, nobody wants to say anything.
“So many appointments in this government are not on merit. Some people have taken over the government as if they are even above the president. They take decisions anyhow. We say we are fighting corruption, Babachir that the vice-president’s committee indicted him.
Today, they are pursuing other people, why can’t they take Babachir (Lawal, former SGF) to court and all of us are here keeping quiet. People who have not done anything are always in court. This is the man that squandered money meant for IDPs and he is still visiting villa every day.”
He also alleged that the Cabals in the Presidency have finalized plans to impeach the Senate president, Bukola Saraki adding that the President was no longer in charge. In his words;
“Mr. President, distinguished colleagues, President Buhari is not in charge, but the cabals. They determine who and who to be appointed.
During our New year holiday, cabals in the Presidency became suspicious that the Senate President may defect to PDP, so they have made up their minds to initiate impeachment moves against him”.
