Salihu Lukman, a former vice chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the North West, has criticized President Bola Tinubu for the suffering that Nigerians are going through.
Lukman bemoaned the fact that the majority of Nigerians believed Tinubu to be a responsive politician who would weigh the pros and cons before making snap judgments.
The APC chairman stated that Nigerians are becoming poorer and urged the President to respond to their sufferings.
According to a statement he signed, Nigerians are no longer able to afford basic medical care.
Lukman urged politicians, including Tinubu and APC leaders, to perform better.
The statement contained the following passages: “Is President Asiwaju Tinubu aware that the bulk of our citizens—including those with relatively high incomes—cannot afford to take medication when they fall ill?
Many of us—indeed, the majority of Nigerians—think that President Asiwaju Tinubu is a responsive leader who will never make a snap decision without carefully considering how it will affect the lives of his constituents.
Being human, we expect him to be the receptive leader he is when decisions are made that have serious repercussions, like withdrawing subsidies and fluctuating exchange rates.
We anticipate that he will swiftly examine and reevaluate these choices with the ultimate goal of ensuring the wellbeing of the populace. That is the main goal of progressive politics.
“May God Almighty open the minds and hearts of President Asiwaju Tinubu, the leaders of the All Progressives Congress, and all Nigerian politicians to the reality that millions of Nigerians face a life-threatening situation on a daily basis.”
“People are asking leaders, especially President Asiwaju Tinubu, to be responsive to today’s reality, just as we asked for their votes during elections.”
