Following the insecurity issues in the country and the hardship ravaging the citizens, the Middle Belt United Assembly (MBUA) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to apologise to Nigerians.

The group slammed President Buhari for his failed promises in his 2015 manifesto.

In 2015, many recall the campaign promises made by Buhari, however, for about seven years of been in power, the economic situation has grown from bad to worse under his tenure.

Speaking with the press in Kaduna on Thursday, the group’s President, Comrade Moses Mwarga Aji, lament the poverty rate in the country as several households go to bed without food to eat due to the high prices of food which has since doubled.

“We call on President Buhari to tender a public apology to Nigerians over his failed promises on security, economy, fighting corruption. From bad in 2015 to worst now.

“The nation is in suspense over the fate of 2023 general elections as some prominent Nigerians are expressing fear that elections may not hold because of insecurity. Elections must hold as planned by the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC). Nigerians will not accept postponement of elections.

"President Buhari should leave a legacy behind for Nigerians. The way things stand now in the country Nigerians may not remember Mr. President when he leaves office. They may remember him only when insecurity, corruption, and hardship are mentioned. Please, Mr. President, use the remaining few months to correct and reset Nigeria on the path of progress, unity, and development,” he said.
