2023: How karma is hunting Atiku, Wike, Ayu, others in PDP
Many have tagged the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari as a total failure because of the persistent insecurity and rising inflation, which has made the pockets go dry and subject the bellies to hunger, but karma seemed to be on his side and his party ahead of the general election.
The insecurity and inflation have swept Buhari’s landmark achievements in infrastructure and agriculture under the rug, influencing the retired general’s comment that those who are supposed to talk about his achievements are not doing so.
The largest opposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which is meant to seize the opportunity on the ground and hijack the power from the All Progressives Congress (APC), decided to play the tribal game and jeopardised the hope of southerners taking over from Buhari.
