Give Nigerians The Change You Promised Them – Chief John Odige(former national chairman of APC)
President Muhammadu Buhari has been asked by a former national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, to address the current agitations and social unrest rocking Nigeria.
Odigie-Oyegun noted that it has been six years since the Buhari-led APC government took over power and Nigerians are yet to see the “promised change”,
The former Edo governor advised the president and the ruling party to explore democratic means of addressing the separatist agitations in the country instead of deploying the military.
Odigie-Oyegun expressed his dissatisfaction with the current security challenges threatening the peace of the nation.
According to him, the earlier it is addressed, the earlier it shows that the APC is responsive to the needs of the people it was elected to serve, The Sun reports.
APC chieftain noted that things are getting worse and the people are suffering. He stated:
“Things are bad, there is no question. People are angry, there is no question. People are hungry, there is no question.”
Chief Frank Kokori, an elder statesman is of the opinion that President Buhari exploited the day.
According to Kokori, the president used the move to score a cheap political point as he forgot about the date and all the promises he made to the Abiola family. He noted that after all the promises Buhari made, he did not remember any of them.
