Act Fast, Nigerians Are Losing Hope, APC Chieftain Tells Buhari
A member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Board of Trustees (BoT), Olisaemeka Akamukale, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to intensify efforts to reduce the economic hardship in the country, lamenting that Nigerians were fast losing patience with the administration.
This was even as he alleged that about three serving ministers in President Buhari’s cabinet were saboteurs, who had opposed his presidential bid, before the last general elections.
Speaking with journalists at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja, yesterday, Akamukale, who is the only APC caucus member from Delta State, said: “If by 2019 the APC dream is cut short by Nigerians, many people you see today, some, who are ministers and others, will go back but some of us will still remain.
“Many people will go back and look for a new government to take position. They will tell you that they are technocrats because they have nothing to lose.
“If you really ask me, I think Nigerians are becoming impatient with us because it is now about two years into this government. So, it is for Nigerians, and not about me or about APC members, to know what this government will do to benefit them.”
He expressed anger at the activities of some cabinet ministers, saying even those who never believed in the “change mantra” were now driving the change.
“I agree that it is painful; I know about two or three ministers who who told me Buhari would never be President of Nigeria, but are serving today. They are benefiting from Buhari’s administration. It is only they that have their shame, because it is only a dog that goes back to its vomit.”
