Journalist and Fellow, Institute of Management Consultants, Mr. Iteveh Ekpokpobe has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to apologize to Nigerians and tender his resignation letter over alleged failed promises to the electorate.
Ekpokpobe has accused the President Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) federal government of being incapable of making Nigeria work.
He said the incumbent government has done nothing more than increase the frustration of Nigerians with policies and actions that were adverse to sustainable development and good governance.
Iteveh also called on President Buhari to apologize to Nigerians for promising a direct opposite of his current actions and to tender his resignation.
Some Nigerians who responded to the issue have posit that they don’t see the possibility of such happen in Nigeria or other African countries
According to Ekpokpobe, Nigeria has not faired worse than now, since its nascent Democracy which took off in 1999.
His words, “Today, we are witnessing a hike in fuel pump price, a further plunge of Naira’s value, inflation, heightened insecurity, a hike in utility bills. Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari has all the features of a failed state.”
Nigerians are facing these plights in the face of a global pandemic that almost incapacitated the world. The decision of the government reeks of insensitivity. The government has not fulfilled any of its campaign promises made to Nigerians. Buhari should seriously consider his resignation. Nigerians need an apology”, he stressed.
Contrary to Ekpokpobe’s view, for some Buhari is doing well, and need not apologies
For some others, resignation is the only way to emancipate the masses from the sufferings in the present administration.
Meanwhile, the President, Centre for Change and Women Arise, Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin, has said the increase in electricity tariff and petrol price would worsen hardship.
She made this known in a press statement titled ‘No to further hardship’ on Sunday.
According to the activist, President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime chose the wrong time to increase the price of fuel and electricity tariff.
Okei-Odumakin said, “The recent hike in the prices of fuel products and electricity tariff is woeful combination of hardship from a Government that was making sweet promises to the people over a year ago.
In her opinion, while the Buhari’s government should have taken the respite offered by the patience of the people as golden opportunity to fulfil its election promises of a better life for Nigerians, it should not take it as liberty to continue to inflict further hardship on the people.
What is your view about the current situation in Nigeria? As to the opinion of Buhari tendering apology to Nigeria, what is your take, should he resign or not?
