A political ally of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Comrade Timi Frank, has expressed hope that despite the second term swearing-in ceremony of President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, May 29, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, will be declared winner by the judiciary.
Comrade Frank, a former deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), made his stance known in a statement sent to Legit.ng on Wednesday, My 29.
According to him, supporters of the PDP presidential candidate would wait for the Supreme Court's pronouncement of the between Buhari and Atiku.
“We remain hopeful that the judiciary would restore our stolen mandate,” he said.
While assessing the last four years of the APC’s government under Buhari, Frank opined that: “most Nigerians who brought him to power in 2015 are now regretting doing so in the first place.”
“Despite all the heavy propaganda his government has embarked on, the promise to end insurgency is still a mirage. Under your administration not only that Boko Haram insurgents are still active, kidnapping and banditry that were no threat have compounded the country's woes.
“The so-called anti-corruption war of your government in the last four years only succeeded in victimising Nigerians in the opposition. No official in this government can boldly say what the recovered amounts are being utilized but Nigerians know they are being re-looted.
“On the economic front, this administration is notorious for amassing loans. Unemployment is at record breaking levels, while small and big businesses have collapsed without any remedy even as corruption at the state level has been subsidized on several occasions in the name of bailouts and and Paris Club refunds,” he added.
He also called on religious leaders, traditional rulers and all patriots to continue to pray and speak out against injustice in the society.
Meanwhile, outgoing ministers and state governors elected on the platform of the APC are said to be intensifying their battle of wits to make their way into the next cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Buhari’s first tenure ends at midnight on Tuesday, May 28, the same day all ministers are required to leave office.
But many of them are keen to return, even as some of the outgoing governors who want to move to the federal level are also making political moves to get into the cabinet.
