An All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator, Ali Ndume, has claimed that you may not leave the Wuse Market in Abuja alive if you criticize President Muhammadu Buhari there.
In an interview with NAN, Ndume insisted that Buhari enjoyed goodwill among many Nigerians.
“If you go to Wuse Market and start criticising this government, I don’t think you will come back alive.
“For instance, Charly Boy, convener of ‘Our Mumu Don Do’ carried his agitation too far. He went to Wuse Market and the masses chased him away,” the lawmaker said.
Ndume also said the APC was doing all within its power to fix the country.
“The APC has problems like every other party and particularly because it is a combination of many parties that came together to wrestle power from PDP,” he said.
“I am not using that as an excuse, but the people criticising APC are the people that destroyed Nigeria, abused and vandalised Nigeria for 16 years.
“When the previous government came into power, yes, there was armed robbery problem but it was minimal.
“There was no kidnapping, Boko Haram and no farmers-herders clash. Even, communal clashes then were not frequent.
“Buhari said he will address three things – insecurity, infrastructural decay and corruption. While we will not say we have gotten there yet, we are working hard.
“Some of the challenges faced by this government are pure criminality and we should not politicise the issue by associating it with the APC.”
