KADUNA/Nigeria: A group, the Atiku Care Foundation has taken a swipe on the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Muhammad Buhari over what it described as perilous times facing the country.
This was expressed in a statement signed by the Spokesman of the foundation, Okpani Jacob Onjewu Dickson, made available to newsmen on Monday in Kaduna.
“It is saddening to see that Nigeria is heading towards a new precipice of a dangerous level, occasioned by the current level of economic uncertainty and harvests of deaths from preventable causes,” it said.
The foundation lamented that Nigerians now wake to receive sad news of suicide that is mostly affecting the youth, whom are expected to be the future of this great country.
It further stated that in spite of the abundance of human and material resources, the nation is gripped with economic woes, resulting from poor management by those at the helm of affairs.
“It is a sad awakening, Nigeria has never had it this bad, and as if they envisaged it, they overwhelmingly cast their votes for former vice president, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar (GCON) in the 2019 polls, with most disappointed that his mandate was wickedly stolen.
“The now emboldened well armed bandits, kidnappers and other criminals are having a field day terrorising innocent Nigerians on a daily basis.
“The story is not different, from Zamfara to Kaduna, Katsina to Plateau, Delta to Anambra, it has been harvests of death in recent times, with most Nigerians wondering if the security agencies have gone on a long break,” it noted.
The group said that the soul of the nation is bleeding “as most highways have become grave yards for travelers.”
It pointed out that the Boko Haram terrorists which the government claimed to have decimated have become bolder, attacking military barracks at will, making more women widows in an already bastardized economy where even those with husbands find survival hectic.
“We call on President Muhammad Buhari and the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) to take urgent measures in tackling these challenges to prevent anarchy, ahead of Atiku’s victory at the tribunal, to prevent inheriting a comatose country.
“The message is getting clearer and we remain confident that, Atiku is coming!” It concluded.
