The All Progressives Congress, APC, Deputy National Chairman (South), Segun Oni, has said that Nigerians are expecting impossible change from the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
According to him, while it was not wrong for Nigerians to expect “magic” from the APC, the reality on ground shows that there is no magic wand to make Nigeria’s problems vanish overnight.
He pleaded with Nigerians to exercise more patient with the APC-led Federal Government, as the government is determined to do its best to salvage the problems ravaging the country as much as it can.
Oni, who stated this on Tuesday, August 30, at APC secretariat in Abuja, during an interview with newsmen alleged that some politicians he described as “money bags,” have been funding criminals under the guise of herdsmen to knock Buhari’s administration off-balance.
He said: “The economy was traumatized by a government whose only agenda was to win another round (of elections). Therefore, everything that they could put into trying to win a second round, even bastardising the economy was done and we are all here.
“The reality on ground is that, if the previous government were in power by now, Nigeria would have virtually packed up, maybe many of us would have become refugees by now.
“Yes, we are elected to do the impossible; we will do our best. I just want to plead that people should give us more realistic expectations,” he said.
