A chieftain of the All Progressive Grand Alliance(APGA) and a governorship candidate in last election in kogi state Comrade Lukeman Akwu has lampooned President Muhammad Buhari and the All Progressive Congress (APC) for lacking the intellectual capacity and political will to deliver the promised change mantra to the people.
Akwu dropped the hints while speaking with the Daily independent yesterday in lokoja stressing that after ten months in power, the much hyped change mantra has become elusive.
“We expected President Buhari to use six months to lay the foundation for the”change” and hit the ground running, but 10 months after, reverse is the case as there is still no sign of change in any aspect of our lives”, he said.
He said it was wrong for the president and his party to indulge in blame game, saying that their excuses at this stage is a confirmation that the APC administration lacked focus and wherewithal to solve Nigeria’s problems.
“Nigerians demand change for workers who are not being paid promptly; change for applicants, to get a gainful employment, change from darkness to brightness, change from hunger to abundant foods, change from lawlessness to rule of law and change from insecurity to security of lives and properties, including change from injustice to justice and from endless queues at the petrol stations “, he appealed.
The activist turned politician said he is challenging the proponents of change mantra and its agents to show the world the meaningful things that Mr. President has done that is entirely different from the previous governments.
He lamented that under the change mantra,the condition of kogi state workers in particular has change from bad to worse, since the era of president Buhari’s administration, who raised their hopes by initiating bailout fund, Wondering why the state workers are yet to access a kobo from the said fund.
While commending the government for confronting the menace of corruption among those in public institutions of government, advised the president to consider the people as the centerpiece of his policy.
