The Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie Oyegun has said that the country is not working adding that the people are losing faith in its leaders.
Oyegun made this comment while speaking at the 17th edition of the Daily Trust Dialogue. He revealed that there was an active threat to the Nation’s democracy. In his words;
“I borrow from what the former governor of Borno State (Kashim Shettima) said. He passionately appealed that we must try to make Nigeria work. Why is Nigeria not working? At the risk of being misinterpreted, let me make the point that we have been growing in those 20 years, every year and with every administration,”
“I dare to even say that there is hardly a single administration in those 20 years that has not left office unpopular and unheralded.”
“We have never asked ourselves the question why are our people getting increasingly unhappy with their governors within those 20 years. Why are they getting poorer, why are they losing hope, those are the questions I think pose a threat to our democracy because today we are beginning to hear rumblings that we didn’t hear before.”
