Following the statement by the First Lady, Mrs. Aisha Buhari that some cabals have hijacked her husband’s APC-led government, the South African chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday, called on President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to empathize with suffering Nigerians in the face of biting recession.
Addressing newsmen at the party’s head office in Johannesburg, South Africa, Hon. Ekos Akpokabayen, speaking through his media aide, Mr. Nwokeji ifeanyi, said, “Being surrounded by strangers, we can still get things done, if we can revisit the origin of the mistakes by the APC-led administration. The leadership should set aside their ego and begin wide consultations in order to figure out the pressing needs of Nigerians and address them quickly.”
“President Buhari should empathize with the suffering citizens of Nigeria, a country which personal well-being indexes dropped by 0.06 percentage point, eleven months after the APC took over government. A country which its masses are plunged into food crisis, should hold its leaders responsible,” he concluded.
