COVID-19 Lockdown: AAC knocks Buhari for not addressing robbery in Lagos, Ogun


The African Action Congress (AAC), has attacked President Muhammadu Buhari for not addressing massive robbery attacks in Lagos and Ogun during his nationwide broadcast on Coronavirus lockdown extension.

The party which produced, Omoyele Sowore in the last general election, said Mr Buhari was not prepared for the speech.

AAC made this known in a statement by its secretary Oshioks Philips.

“The plea that Nigerians endure and die of hunger at home, only adding “one million houses to the social register” is one assault Nigerians must stand up and reject.

“Lagos alone has 20 million people and all the social register is just 3.6 million houses to take care of Lagos, Ogun and FCT. This means that Buhari and APC want to keep more people at home dying of poverty.

“AAC insists that Buhari and the APC should be booted out now before they kill us all.

“For the past two weeks, mass robbery, hunger, and pains have visited houses with government officials taking care of their family and party members alone.

“The ruling party does not have the political goodwill to deliver Nigeria safely and soundly out of this pandemic.”

“In Lagos, Nigerians have turned themselves to vigilante while millions have been fighting to survive to stay at home.

“Our position is clear, we need all adults in Lagos, Ogun, and FCT to be paid cost of living allowance of at least N100,000 each. Our party also believes that health and security workers especially should be giving standard hazard allowances, not the N5,000 currently being paid.

“The continuation of the current madness as advocated in President Buhari’s speech is an insult working Nigerians must not take.

“Let’s send these rogues away once and for all so that sanity can be restored in this country”
