Former Minister of
Education, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, says citizens are not happy with
the current administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to him, almost a year after assuming power, the change mantra preached by the All Progressives Congress, APC, has turned out to be a ruse.
Shekarau spoke yesterday while addressing supporters of the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at his residence in Kano after the
constitution of a 44-man sub-committee.
â€œIt is unfortunate that the APC has failed to address the abject poverty among Nigerians,â€ the former Kano Governor said.
â€œThose promoting the change mantra have now ended up rewarding electorates with hunger, poverty, illiteracy and embarrassing queues at our filling stations.â€
Appealing to Nigerians to give the PDP another chance, Shekarau described the APC as congregation of political opportunists.
â€œWe are still waiting to see when Nigerians
will start enjoying the change the APC promised. It is almost a
year now after it took over power.
â€œThe first quarter of the year has already passed without a working budget for our dear nation,â€ he said.
