Senate President Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday, urged ministers, lawmakers and other office holders to jettison 2019 and focus on good governance for now.
He said it would be insensitive for any politician to abandon good governance to take on politics at this crucial time.
He also spoke on the fuel scarcity issue and described it as ‘man-made’.
Said he, “This is the last productive year before we go into electioneering. It is too early for the politics of 2019 to take over the role of governance. We must put governance first.
“We have all been witnesses to the suffering in this country, especially during the Christmas period. The fuel scarcity is man-made. I thought we had passed this stage. It is our responsibility that we get to the bottom of this and hold those responsible for the scarcity responsible.
“We condemn the killings in Benue State. The killings are uncalled for and must be condemned. We must bring the perpetrators to justice and ensure that people are kept safe.”
