Chairman of South East Senate Caucus, Senator Enyinaya Abaribe said anyone still calling for President Muhammadu Buhari re-election is not fit.
The Senator who currently represents Abia South constituency made this statement while admonishing his colleagues who opposed the amendment to the Electoral Act regarding election sequence in the 2019 general elections.
Abaribe made this statement in Abuja on Thursday.
“Anybody who attaches himself to Buhari for re-election is not fit, abinitio, to be a Senator.
“It is high time politicians stopped riding on the back of some political establishments or parties to win elections in Nigeria.” He said.
The Senator said those oppose to the new amendment are the politicians who cannot win an election without clinging to Buhari.
The National Assembly conference committee had harmonised the different versions of the passed bill from the two chambers now ready for onward submission to the president for assent.
On Wednesday, some senators under the platform of the All Progressives Congress claimed that the bill was targeted at President Muhammadu Buhari.
