The Senator representing Nasarawa West, Abdullahi Adamu, yesterday declared that President Muhammadu Buhari is the person who God has chosen to lead the country, warning those who have problem with this are ungodly and should be wary of God’s wrath.
Addressing a gathering of APC stalwarts in Keffi, Nasarawa state, he pointed out that the symbol of Nigeria’s sovereignty resides in the office of the President, stressing that he and some of his colleagues in the Senate are being patriotic by siding with President Buhari.
Newsworth recalls that Adamu was among the nine senators who recently rejected the decision of the Senate to change the sequence of the general election, arguing that it was targeted at President Muhammadu Buhari. Days later, he was removed as the chairman of the Northern Senators’ Forum.
The lawmaker however said at the meeting on Monday, “I am under oath as a member of the Distinguished Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and my oath of office compels me to be loyal, to be patriotic in the course of promoting the well-being, existence and unity of Nigeria.
“And the sovereignty of this country is expressed symbolically in the office of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. And today as we talk, the person God has chosen to be the president of this country, the symbol of the sovereignty of this nation is President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Those who don’t accept this are being ungodly. Those who don’t accept this reality are deceiving themselves more than any other person, and they should be careful of the wrath of God Himself.
“Power belongs to God, power comes from God, not anybody. Anybody who is in power is just an accessory, God uses you to do what He wants, and once God does what He wants and you take a position opposing what God has done, be careful, you may carry curse.
“What me and my like are doing is a duty we owe this country, it’s a duty we owe ourselves, to support the government of the day. Over and above that, the government of today, the Federal Government of Nigeria, is an APC government, so I hold my head high for identifying with my party, for being loyal to my party, because, but for things going wrongly, we should uphold the principles of party supremacy.
“You can’t get elected on the platform of a party and you get to the Assembly, and do anti-party activities. You don’t want the party for any reason, you feel you are not part of it, get out of it. I can understand if a PDP person doesn’t want to be supporting, he should find a means of drawing that line between loyalty to the constitution of the country, and his anti-government mentality. Even if you are PDP and a member of the National Assembly, there are situations where you are supposed to be bipartisan, meaning there is a limit to where you can go by being anti-government because the person occupying the presidency is not from your party. Only those who know such limits, and are ready to abide by such limits are the ones who can answer their father’s name in the national assembly.”
