APC has ruined Nigeria – Ex-minister Bolaji Abdullahi

Former Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Bolaji Abdullahi, has blamed the All Progressives Congress for the country's current predicament.

According to him, the APC government led by President Muhammadu Buhari brought the country to its kneels. He said this at an event set up by the Kwara state Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists in Ilorin, on August 10.

He noted that the level of insecurity in Nigeria is worrisome as citizens find it difficult to travel or work out late at night.

“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 was of the view that, the restructuring of the country should have happened long time ago as he traced Nigeria's problem to 1966.

“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.
