A former Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, has described the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as the country’s worst disaster.
Naija News reports that Dalung, who dumped the ruling party last month, made this known in Yola, the Adamawa State capital on Sunday.
He was in Yola to help a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Mohammed Hayatudeen, confer with the party’s delegates ahead of the party’s primary.
The former minister stated that the country under the Muhammadu Buhari-led government is no longer safe and the economy is becoming worse on a daily basis.
Dalung added that the country is now led by a leader who is not touched by the pains of the masses and does not care if the people are hungry.
He, however, urged Nigerians to reject the APC in the 2023 elections both at the federal and states level.
He said, “In 2015 we chased the PDP out and committed our collective destiny into the hands of those we now know were all along like a mad man holding matches at a filling station.
“The result is what we have today, Nigeria is no longer safe, Nigeria is now a nation of hungry people, Nigeria is now led by a leader who is not touched by the pains of the masses.
“We must avoid this type of mistake in 2023; yes, we should reject a leader whose decisions are laced with religious and ethnic considerations.
“As it is currently biting, the negative impact of their bad leadership is blind to tribe, section or religion. Whenever bandits come calling, they don’t discriminate who to pick for ransom. This informs why we must chase them out in 2023.”
Speaking further, Dalung denied joining the PDP, saying that he was in Yola to support his friend and brother, Hayatudeen.
He said: “I’ve left the APC but I have not joined the PDP. I’m here to support a candidate I believe has what is required to pull Nigeria through.”
