The House of Representatives Minority Caucus has described the performance of the All Progressives Congress-led administration in the last six years as a failure.
In a statement released by the minority leader, Ndudi Elumelu, the caucus noted that the failure to check worsening insecurity and mass killing of citizens, intrinsic corruption, mismanagement of the country’s national economy, as well as the unrelenting assault on national diversity justifies it’s position that the APC administration has failed on all fronts.
The lawmakers expressed worry at the exclusionist tendencies, trade restrictions, nepotism in government appointments, disregard for rule law, the relegation of constitutional order and principles of separation of powers; abuse of human rights, electoral malpractices, harassment of the opposition, and arrogant insensitivity to the sensibilities of the Nigerian people by the APC government which according to them has led to instability, economic crisis and avoidable acrimony that is threatening the corporate existence of the country.
The minority caucus insists that going by available statistics, the country is heading towards a failed state and urged President Muhammadu Buhari to buckle up and use the occasion of May 29 to address the failures of his administration by taking urgent steps to tackle insecurity, ensure respect for rule of law, end corruption in his government, adopt a more inclusive approach to governance and engage better hands to manage the economy.
They commended the commitment of the governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for giving hope to the nation through their excellent performance in key sectors of the country’s national life, despite the daunting challenges.
The minority caucus called on Nigerians to remain focused and not lose sight of the potentials and promises the country hold despite challenges faced under the current administration.
