Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state has blamed the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government for destroying the country, causing Nigerians to suffer.
Mohammed made the remarks on Thursday February 17, during the inauguration of the 5.25kilometres Gedu-Oroki-Sabo-Ashipa road, Oyo, Oyo State.
According to the Governor, Nigerians are suffering exclusion while ''tribalism, sectionalism, regionalism, religious bigotry and selfishness among the leadership reigned supreme in the country.''
"You have seen what the APC has done, they have destroyed everywhere. There is no security anywhere; Nigeria has become the poverty capital of the world. Our people are divided because of sentiments, because of exclusion. People are distraught and disillusioned,” Mohammed said.
As compared to the APC, Mohammed said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) now boasted of new leaders who are “putting aside tribalism, sectionalism, regionalism and religious bigotry to bring people to the fore who can conquer the environment; who know what they are doing; who are not hungry for money; who are not coming to take your resources and Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) and put it in their pockets; who are ready to open new frontiers; develop new synergies; deepen stakeholding,"
Mohammed said Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State typified excellence in leadership, has become a reference point for governors which the PDP is proud of.
He added that Makinde had shown that he came into governance with a plan and had continued to use available resources to improve the quality of life of the people.
