Aminu Tambuwal, the governor of Sokoto State, has criticised the country’s directionlessness under President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Tambuwal said this while engaging with journalists in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, on Friday. He is also the Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Governor’s Forum.
He claimed that the current condition of affairs in Nigeria makes most Nigerians believe there is no government.
Tambuwal claimed that the central government is run as if no one is in charge of the country’s affairs, and that the country is on the verge of collapse under the APC and Buhari Government
The governor of Sokoto Condition, who is a PDP presidential candidate, criticised the country’s bad state of affairs, saying it requires all PDP leaders, patriots, and stakeholders to work together to bring the country back from the verge of collapse.
He insisted that the PDP has the competence, expertise, and management abilities to lead the country’s ship to safety.
“So many people make the mistake of claiming Nigeria is on autopilot,” he added. “When an aeroplane is on autopilot, you can be confident of safety, direction, and even a probable landing because there is technical control.” That is not the case in Nigeria today; the country has no direction, no pilot, and no autopilot. Everyone is on their own, including the government, which is run as if no one is in charge.
“That is why we have been discussing between ourselves in our party and reaching out to other well-intentioned patriots to come together to save and rebuild our country.” We are in such a precarious situation that we require every available hand from within and from our friends. Insecurity, economic hardships, and poor leadership are all present. No state is immune to insecurity, and no area of the country is now safe and secure.
“You can’t speak about investment, you can’t talk about development in the current scenario in our nation.” Before you speak about reconstructing the country, you have to create peace,” he remarked.
