Senator Threatens To Leave Nigeria Over Poor Governance

Senator Ali Ndume, Chairman, Senate Committee on Army, and member of the Committee on Establishment(APC/Borno South) on Thursday threatened to leave the country if the executive refuses to put things in order.

He also accused the Federal Government of mismanaging the economy and refusing to address the country’s unemployment crisis.

He said: “Honestly speaking, time bomb is ticking out there with this policy because of the doors shut out against millions of youths seeking employment through the embargo and retire­ments at the various agencies.

“Making it worrisome is the fact that despite the policy, since 2018 till now, recurrent expenditure components of yearly budget have been increasing.”

He added: “In 2018, the bud­get was N3.5 trillion, N4 trillion in 2019, N4.5 trillion in 2020, N5.6 trillion 2021 and N6.83 trillion in the projected N16.39 trillion 2022 budget.

“It is bad for recurrent expen­diture to be increasing on yearly basis without increase in the number of workforce through required recruitments.

“The embargo is turning to a time bomb that can explode at any time as witnessed in some countries in recent past.

“Personally, I’m already thinking of where to run to if the avoidable crisis is not averted. I visited Ghana and Niger recently in this regard.”
