‘Buhari Hypocritical For Signing 2022 Budget And Ignoring Electoral Bill’ – Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has reportedly stated that it was hypocritical for President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the heavily padded and unimplementable 2022 budget passed by the National Assembly but declined assent to the Electoral Act Amendment Bill.

According to reports, Wike stated this while paying a New Year visit to the Enugu State Governor, Rt. Hon. Lawrence Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

Wike stated, “Look at Mr President the other day while he was signing the budget, he said the budget is unimplementable.”

He added, “But he went on and signed what is unimplementable. A budget that will determine the state of the economy, the progress of this nation, and the President knew this thing can’t work and he signed it.”

He maintained, “Then the Electoral Act, he said he will not sign it because direct primaries are too expensive.”

He noted, “What concerns me with party primaries? What concerns the poor people with party primaries? The one that concerns poor man, businessman, how to grow the economy, you signed it, knowing too well that it will not work.”

The Governor also remarked that the APC-led federal government has failed Nigeria, urging the people of Enugu to speak out against the poor governance the country is experiencing. 

Wike also advised that “You must join the rest of Nigerians. Nigeria is dying. Will you be here to see Nigeria die? Is it the kind of Nigeria that people like Nnamdi Azikiwe fought for?

He continued that, “A Nigeria that when you wake up, what you will hear is 20 people have died, 42 people gave been kidnapped, 100 people have been abducted. Everyday death, death.”
