A Lagos-based human rights activist and Executive Chairman, Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ), Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman has cautioned the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the country to stop apportioning blame on the outgoing Federal Government led by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, instead, they should think on how to fulfill the party electioneering campaign promises.
The rights activist also declared that good governance should be the priority of the party at the centre government now, expressing that Nigerians were expecting the party to surpass the achievements of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) from the period of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo’s government in 1999 till date in the governance of this country.
Speaking on Tuesday on the recent criticisms from the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its leadership against the outgoing government of President Jonathan, through a Statement issued and signed by himself and a copy was made available to newsmen in Lagos, Comrade Sulaiman insisted that by now, good governance for the common good of Nigerians should be their utmost concern, rather than turning the ruling party to opposition political party as a way to cover their non-performing in government.
CHRSJ boss stressed that all hands must be on deck within the party hierarchy in tackling the present economy problem facing the nation and how to call various States ruling by their party that owing the
workers between four(4) to eight(8) months’ salary due to the mis-management of fund accrued to the States from the federation account to order and ensure the payment of the outstanding salaries without further delaying.
According to Sulaiman,” It seems All Progressives Congress (APC) is not ready to govern the country through their recent outburst, instead to come out with their good governance blue print, they now turned
themselves to opposition leaders and they should know that people of the country would not accept any excuse for non-performing from them. By now, APC leaders should think on how to fulfill their electioneering campaign promises to the Nigeria masses, instead of apportioning blame on President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s government.
“President Jonathan has done his best to the people of the country and posterity will judge him accordingly. Blaming of President Jonathan should not be their priority now. People thought that All Progressives Congress (APC) as a political party has the political will to re-engineering the country from Chief Olusegun Obasnjo’s foundation in 1999 and people will not accept less from them. Every Nigeria knows that Chief Obasanjo laid a bad foundation for our democracy between 1999 to 2007 and that is why people believe in the change ideology of All Progressives Congress (APC) and to whom much is given, the much is expected”.
