APC Has Been Dragging Nigeria Through Several Crises Since Coming To Power – Ex-APC National Vice Chair Lukman

Salihu Lukman, a former All Progressives Congress (APC) National Vice Chairman North-West, has bemoaned the fact that since the party took office in 2015, the nation has been steered towards crisis after crisis.

According to a statement released on Saturday by Lukman, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the APC vary slightly in that the former had a manifesto that clearly outlined its platform, while the latter did not. But he said that the APC manifesto was the first to fall when the party won the 2015 elections.

According to Lukman, it was ignored, and the APC, like the PDP, continues to lead “Nigeria from one crisis to another, lurching deeper into political instability, economic collapse, and societal disillusionment.

“Nothing changed as the APC, despite all of its intentions for the security and advancement of Nigerians lacked the wherewithal to carry them out.

“Unfortunately, the APC thrived on the premise; promise (everything), do nothing.

“It is terrible to realise that the country’s current insecurity problem is worse than it was in 2015. It has exacerbated the economic situation because many farmers have abandoned their farms,” Lukman said.

He said some of the advances made in agricultural output as a result of the Buhari administration’s initiatives, such as Anchor Borrower and the prohibition on food imports, which served to incentivize agricultural development, have been undone by the insecurity issue.
