Pan Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere on Friday said the Muhammadu Buhari administration has made Nigeria the global secretariat of poverty since coming to power five years ago.
Scoring the administration low on all indices, Yinka Odumakin, the organization’s National Publicity Secretary said even though Nigeria’s problems started five years ago, the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government has aggravated the situation.
Odumakin who said that we are in civil rule and not a democratic government argued that the current government has dragged Nigeria backward in terms of all identifiable human development indices while democratic gains to Nigerians has been very few.
“I would rather say five years of civil rule and not misuse the word democratic. What we have experienced has been far below democratic expectations and the gains to the people have been paltry”.
“It is not that our problems started five years ago, only that they have aggravated”.
“We were not global secretariat of poverty five years ago, but we are today. We are worse off on all indices today”.
“We must now admit that we cannot use propaganda to make our country better if it had not worked in five years”.
