Jonathan Vatsa, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Niger State, has declared that ”Nigeria is worse under President Muhammadu Buhari, than his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan”,
Vatsa, who is an Aide to the Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani-Bello, made the disclosure in Minna, the State capital, in a statement titled: “When shall we accept the truth”, where he said that all issues raised by Bishop Matthew Kukah were the truth.
The APC Leader said that it is unfortunate that some ‘political contractors’ were picking holes on what he said was “the truth, and sincere assessments of the present situation in the country”.
Vasta noted that the divisions among Nigerians under President Muhamadu Buhari, were more visible than the ones that led to the civil war in the 60s.
He expressed regret that rather than look at Bishop Kukah’s assessment of the situation in the country, and try to proffer solutions to them, the Federal Government and its sympathisers were picking holes and politicising his “genuine and sincere observations”.
The Governor’s Aide said that the Niger State has lost its peace in the last six years, due to bandits activities, with the government spending more money fighting security issues, than on infrastructure.
Vasta added that ”the greatest challenge facing the Buhari administration, is its inability to accept genuine criticism, correct its mistakes, and forge ahead”, saying that, ”apart from security challenges, hunger and poverty have taken over the country’.’
