The Senator representing Nasarawa North Senatorial district, Philip Gyunka, says God gave victory to President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 to prove to the world that he is a non-performer.
He also mocked the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the outcome of the ruling party’s state congresses.
The lawmaker said the development was a good one that would favour the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2019 general election.
Speaking in Arochukwu LGA in Abia State during the PDP state executive tour, Gyunka, who accompanied Sen. Mao Ohuabunwa to the event, said PDP was a political party the world was looking to to change the change at the centre.
“The change I am referring to here is not the type of change we are experiencing now. The ruling party, APC, is taking us seven steps backwards; they are not the visionary. We are the visionary”, Daily Trust quoted him as saying.
“What is happening to President Muhammadu Buhari is good for our party. If Buhari had not won, we wouldn’t have been vindicated. God brought him to expose him to the world that he has nothing in stock for Nigeria,” he said.
Addressing Arochukwu people, state chairman of the PDP, Chief Johnson Onuigbo, said that Nigeria lost all it had gained after the APC government assumed power.
