APC Leading Nigeria from Crisis to Crisis Since 2015 – Lukman

Salihu Lukman, the former National Vice Chairman North-West of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has expressed concern over the party’s governance since it assumed power in 2015.

In a statement released on Saturday, Lukman criticized the APC for steering Nigeria from one crisis to another.

He acknowledged that the APC initially distinguished itself from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by presenting a clear and well-defined vision in its manifesto.

However, Lukman lamented that after winning the 2015 elections, the APC’s manifesto was effectively abandoned.

Lukman noted: “It was discarded and like the PDP, the APC continue to lead ‘Nigeria from one crisis to another, lurching deeper into political anarchy, economic decline and social disillusionment.’

“Nothing changed as the APC, despite all the plans it had ‘for security and advancement of Nigerians,’ lacked ‘the wherewithal to’ implement its vision. With that, sadly, the APC ‘thrived on the maxim; promise (everything), do nothing.’”

“It is quite painful to admit that the crisis of insecurity in the country today, is worse than it was in 2015. It has further deepened the economic crisis because many farmers have abandoned their farms.

“Some of the gains achieved in agricultural production because of some of the policies of the Buhari administration, such as Anchor Borrower and the ban on the importation of food items, which helped to incentivise agricultural production, were eroded by the crisis of insecurity.”
