Tinubu, APC Shortchanged Nigerians – Former APC Vice Chairman



Tinubu, APC Shortchanged Nigerians - Former APC Vice Chairman

The immediate-past Northwest national vice chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Salihu Moh. Lukman has stated that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the All Progressive Congress, APC, have shortchanged Nigerians, News About Nigeria reports.

He stated this in a statement issued Saturday in Abuja, noting that the APC is progressing backward.

He noted that what Nigerians are having today wasn’t what was promised at all, adding that the most disturbing reality is that the current economic hardship is being produced during the first term of President Asiwaju Tinubu, with no end in sight.

He stated that the president cannot be interested in a second tenor, managing the affairs of government like a military dictator, shutting down the structures of the party, and talking down on citizens like a philosopher king who has absolute knowledge of what will produce possible happiness for citizens.

According to him, the main issue worrying Nigerians, and particularly APC members, in addition to whether citizens will survive the current hardship being experienced, is also to understand the details of government initiatives to get Nigerians out of the hardship.

“With the APC now increasingly becoming a closed shop with virtually all its organs demobilised and the omnipotent status of the President strengthened, what is the future of the APC? Being an envisioned progressive party but ending up producing progressive governments in reverse gear, what is the implication?

“These questions are being asked not in agreement with any conclusion of being indifferent but to attempt to rekindle the conscience of our leaders, especially President Asiwaju Tinubu. Without any hesitation, one can argue that at the rate we are going, our party (APC), and our leaders have short-changed Nigerians. What Nigerians are having today wasn’t what was promised at all,” he stated.
