Nigeria has not settled since Buhari became president – Reps member, Betty Apiafa

A member of the House of Representatives, representing Abua-Odua/Ahoada East federal constituency, Betty Apiafa has stated that Nigeria became unsettled since the All Progressives Congress mounted the seat of power.

Apiafa, who doubles as Chairman, House Committee on Health Institutions, noted that the current administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari treats citizens with utter disdain.

According to her, “In Nigeria, the All Progressives Congress, APC, should realize they are the party in power.

“The country has not settled since they came to power. Today they are fighting the National Assembly; today Ministers are making inciting statements. You can’t fight with the judiciary, legislators all the time.

“You saw the way Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, ran government calmly and positively. Now you have a situation where a party with majority in the National Assembly is always at daggers drawn.

“Nigeria, as it is today, is a country where you don’t respect minority rights, and this is critical. I come from a minority; I don’t regret it. But one does not feel right that minorities are treated this way.

“Look at the last elections I was intimidated. The kind of intimidation we suffered in that election was unprecedented.

“They took my driver to intimidate me. I had to run on the motor bike on that re-run Election Day. They collected my car, and it was after the election they released it with an apology.”
