Obasanjo Joins ADC, Says Nigerians Are Poorer Under APC
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s Coalition for Nigeria Movement has joined the African Democratic Congress, ADC to wrestle power from the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Obasanjo announced the move as parts of efforts for the Coalition movement to actualize its dream of a new Nigeria during a news conference at his Presidential Library, Abeokuta on Thursday.
He lampooned the ruling APC of taking Nigerians for fools with its unrepentant misgoverning of the country as he posited that many Nigerian had become poorer under the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The former president stated that the Federal Government had impoverished the country with foreign loans, which had since jumped from $3.6bn to over $18bn within two years.
He said, “The APC, as a political party, is still gloating and revelling in its unrepentant misgovernance of Nigeria and taking Nigerians for fools.
“There is neither remorse nor appreciation of what they are doing wrong. It is all arrant arrogance and insult upon injury for Nigerians.
“Whatever the leadership may personally claim, most Nigerians know that they are poorer today than when the APC came in and Nigeria is more impoverished with our foreign loan jumping from $3.6bn to over $18bn to be paid by the present and future generations of Nigerians.
