The immediate past Minister of Education, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, yesterday said the All Progressives Congress, APC, had failed Nigerians. This is just as he accused President Muhammadu Buhari of insensitivity to the plight of the masses.
The ex-minister said barely a year after the APC-led government came into office, the change mantra it sold to the electorate was yet to be felt by Nigerians.
Shekarau, a former governor of Kano State, made this known while addressing supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at his residence in Kano after the constitution of a 44-man sub-committee.
The PDP chieftain said the APC had failed Nigerians, as according to him, the party is not addressing the problems confronting the country.
He said: “It is unfortunate that the APC has failed to address the abject poverty among Nigerians. Those promoting the change mantra have now ended up rewarding electorates with hunger, poverty, illiteracy and embarrassing queues at our filling stations”.
Shekarau, therefore, called on Nigerians to give the PDP another chance to deal with APC, a party he described as congregation of political opportunists.
“We 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. The first quarter of the year has already passed without a working budget for our dear nation”, he said.
