Senator Paulker frowns at Buhari's pattern of fighting corruption

The senator representing Bayelsa Central Senatorial District Chief Emmanuel Paulker has frowned at President Mohammadu Buhari's witch-hunting pattern of fighting-corruption in Nigeria. Although fighting corruption is healthy for democracy but however it should focus not on only former president Goodluck Jonathan's regime. The regime before Jonathan is made to be probe as well. Senator Paulker made this observations at an interactive session with media men to conclude his thanksgiving to God after his community accorded him a chieftain title in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital. He posited that his view on this issue is the same with the PDP caucus at the National Assembly saying that anything short of this claim could be regarded as unacceptable. It could be recalled that Senator Paulker's posters to vie for the governorship seat of the Bayelsa state sometime littered the city streets, but responding to questions the senator debunked the rumour, describing it as a figment of imagination by overzealous supporters although everybody is entitled to view for governor. However he indicated that when the time comes, members of the political class and the public will be informed. Asked whether he's comfortable with the mass defection by his party's members in Bayelsa to the APC, his response was negative; "I'm not comfortable", He liken the defection as snake as it is dangerous for a member of the same family leaving you to another one and nobody knows when he bites you He believed that politics is not for acrimony because the the PDP is one family therefore anybody can be at one another place of interest On president Buhari's regime so far, Senator Paulker said he is striving on Jonathan footprints as electricity generation has increased and running of the trains . He described thanksgiving as gratitude to God for the hard times he passed through before and after the general elections nation wide.
