Senator Mao Ohuabunwa, representing Abia North District, has cried out over the destructive activities of herdsmen.
He said with the way the security threat was being treated, the APC Federal Government seemed to value the life of animals more than that of human beings.
Ohuabunwa spoke while commissioning a project at Nneato community of Umunneochi Local Government Area.
The lawmaker lamented the manner human beings were killed on daily basis by Fulani militia in Nigeria under the watch of APC government.
“Nigeria is so insecure today that we no longer talk of killings, but the number killed. We have lost value for human lives. In Nigeria under APC, cows and dogs have more value than human beings,” Senator Ohuabunwa said.
According to him, there was never a time in the history of Nigeria when “insecurity had gone as bad as it is today”.
He challenged the APC-led Federal Government to stop passing the bulk and take responsibility for its failure to secure lives and property of Nigerians.
To this end, he hinted that majority of APC senators had perfected plans to dump the party and defect to PDP, which he claimed would provide a better leadership to the country.
“I can tell you that APC senators are now playing more opposition than their PDP counterparts because they have lost faith in their party,” he noted.
“Very soon they will defect en-masse to PDP. They are only waiting for the right time to strike.
“They are ashamed of what to tell their constituents during campaign. Is it to tell them that their party brought hunger and allowed killings of innocent Nigerians? No, they are tired of the lies”, the Senator said.
