The National Chairman of Labour Party (LP), Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdusalam, at the weekend said the All Progressives Congress (APC) government led by President Muhammadu Buhari has “failed woefully” in over two years in office.
Abdulsalam, who spoke at press conference in Abeokuta, Ogun State, accused Buhari of “sectional appointment and development”, and noted that “there is pervasive hunger in the land with “anger written on faces of Nigerians.”
The LP chairman equally carpeted the APC-led government on the recently inaugurated committee on New Minimum wage, saying with salary arrears hanging on the neck of many governors, salary increment is not feasible.
“APC has failed woefully. Let me tell you why APC failed. Buhari belongs to CPC. Tinubu and his group belong to ACN. Okorocha belongs to APGA. Onu belongs to ANPP. So, you discover that about five political parties are operating independent.
“The other parties have been subjected to nothing. Sectional appointment and development so to say have been concentrated in CPC.
“You can see now that Buhari is trying to mend fences with Tinubu. So, If I am to rate APC performance in Nigeria they won’t get more than 5 percent.
“When Buhari went to present 2018 budget there were placards by senators and members of House of Representatives and it took Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, some time to appease them.
“How can you present budget for three years and you could not implement 20 percent of the budget. Where is that done? In terms of medical, they have performed woefully. If Buhari has headache, ear pain or nose, he would run to London.
“So, they have failed the country woefully. Everybody in this country today is
hungry. There is hunger on the street and there is anger on the face of the people because APC has failed totally.”
The chairman said the opposition party would not zone it’s governorship in Ogun State, but assured of their readiness “to take over from Governor Ibikunle Amosun come 2019.”
“We don’t support zoning here. That is what is killing the so-called big political parties. Anybody who come and is acceptable to all of you and you elect him in primaries, so be it,” Abdulsalam said.
While dismissing crisis in LP, Abdulsalam said “I remain the authentic national chairman.”
