The senator representing Abia North senatorial district in the National Assembly, Sen. Mao Ohuabunwa has said that some All Progressives Congress (APC) senators were now at the forefront of attacks on their own party because they had lost faith in its ability to solve the myriad challenges facing the nation.
Ohuabunwa, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senator, made this known on Monday while commissioning a motorised water borehole project in his constituency.
He said that happenings around the country, especially the activities of Fulani herdsmen militia, showed that the APC-led government values the lives of cows and dogs above human life.
He said, “Nigeria is so insecure today that we no longer talk of killings, but the number killed. We have lost value for human lives. In Nigeria under APC, cows and dogs have more value than human beings.”
He said that insecurity in Nigeria had never been this bad, adding that the APC government needed to accept responsibility for its failures.
Ohuabunwa said that the wanton destruction of lives and properties by herdsmen across the country had pitched some APC lawmakers against their own party, with many of then threatening to deflect to the PDP.
He said, “I can tell you that APC senators are now playing more opposition than their PDP counterparts because they have lost faith in their party.
“Very soon they will defect en-masse to PDP. They are only waiting for the right time to strike.
“They are ashamed of what to tell their constituents during campaign. Is it to tell them that their party brought hunger and allowed killings of innocent Nigerians? No, they are tired of the lies.”
