The All Progressives Congress, or APC, had been showing an evident lack of experience to manage the affairs of the nation, according to Conference of South-South Youth Organizations, which said that the party could not lead Nigerians into another period of doom in 2023.
The group’s convener, Mr. David Ebrunu, told reporters in Ughelli, Ughelli North Local Government Area, Delta State, that the APC lacked the ideologies necessary to turn the tide of a complex nation like Nigeria.
Ebrunu bemoaned the escalating wave of insecurity and the economic mess that he claimed had been brought on by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration and urged the party to sincerely apologize to Nigerians for woefully breaking its election campaign pledges.
“Nigerians are groaning under the severe economic realities where they cannot pay the costs of food or the commodities needed to improve their quality of life,” he stated.
“Because the Niger Delta Development Commission, or NDDC, was given to cronies who have been holding down the collective aspirations of the majority of Niger Delta residents, the government has been unable to effectively address the issues of neglecting the oil-rich Niger Delta.
Student absences from the nation’s higher institutions for well over five months running clearly demonstrate that the APC lacks the ideology to move the ship of a complicated country like Nigeria,” the statement reads.
