Ahead of the 2023 elections, former Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Bolaji Abdullahi, has called on Nigerians to vote out the All Progressive Congress, saying that the present ruling party has ruined the nation.
Speaking at an event organized by the Kwara state Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists in Ilorin on August 10, Abdullahi said the ruling party has brought the country to its knees.
“The APC government has brought this nation to its kneels. All the things we thought could not happened had happened in the last seven years. There is no way we can exonerate APC from the problems of this country.
APC has ruined this country. Nigerians should say no to any politician seeking elective office under APC. 2023 presents historic opportunity to make Nigeria work again.
Every Nigerian lives in fear today because of the problems of insecurity and poverty. The poorest of the poor are 90 million in Nigeria today. But we seem not to understand the magnitude of the problem facing us. We carry on as if all is well. We are treating cancer with wrapping bandage on it.”he said
Abdullahi also traced Nigeria’s problem to 1966 when the nation had its first coup plot, said that no nation can have peace without justice.
“After the civil war our leaders ought to realise that the Nigeria that the British gave us could not work. We should have restructured the country then.
Another opportunity we missed to make Nigeria a real nation was the annulment of June 12. We diagnosed the issue as if it was a Yoruba problem and decided to make one of them a president in 1999. We had a lot of opportunities in June 12 debacle but we bungled them.”he mentioned
