Saraki Frustrated Buhari’s Administration’- Federal Government Claims

Posted by on August 6th, 2018



The Federal Government, at the weekend, said
Senate President Bukola Saraki has since his
emergence as leader of the upper legislative
chamber persistently frustrated the
developmental efforts of the Muhammadu
Buhari administration through deliberate delay
of annual budgets.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai
Mohammed, who revealed this in an interview
with journalists at the weekend in Lagos,
dismissed the claim by the Senate President that
he was not considered by the President in
He also described as untrue, the claim by
Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal, while
announcing his defection from the All
Progressives Congress (APC) to Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) that his state was
starved of Federal Government projects by the
Buhari administration.
His words: “We have a National Assembly in
which we had a clear majority in both houses,
but which treated the executive with contempt
and which actually slowed down the work of
In 2016, 2017 and 2018, our budgets were
delayed. We can understand 2015 budget
because we came on board in the middle of the
year. But in 2016 and 2017, the earliest we got
our budgets was June.
“Key appointments, nominations and
confirmations for key organisations that could
move the government forward like the Central
Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and Nigeria Deposit
Insurance Corporation (NDIC), were delayed.
Really, it couldn’t have been worse if the PDP
had a majority in the National Assembly.” On
Saraki’s claim on appointments, the minister
said: “I think it is a blatant lie that Kwara State
was not considered in appointments.
There are 26 appointees to boards, parastatals,
either as members or directors- general to Kwara
State and of these 26, I recommended only two.
The other 24 were done by Saraki.
“In terms of development, the Ilorin-Jebba-
Mokwa-Birnin Gwari road is 80 per cent
completed. On the other hand, it is this same
government that awarded the contract for Lokoja-
Omu Aran-Ilorin road.
In terms of housing, we are building many two
bedroom houses in Ilorin. Again, in terms of
appointment, one of the chairmen of parastatals
is the out-gone chairman of APC in Kwara State,
Ishola Balogun-Fulani. So, Saraki’s claim is a
blatant lie.”
