2023: It will be suicidal to Returning APC To Power – Northern Awareness
A group of northerners, led by Prof. Usman Yusuf, the former head of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Mahdi Shehu, and Ladan Salihu of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN), have declared that it would be suicidal and destructive to allow the All Progressives Congress (APC) to retake power in 2023.
The announcement was made on Sunday during a news conference in Kano by the organization Northern Awareness Initiative, who also promised that similar events will be held in the coming days throughout the north to inform the populace about the need of ousting the current APC.
According to data from the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics, the organization also accused the APC-led Federal Government of causing over 130 million Nigerians to fall into poverty over the previous eight years (NBS).
Pro Yusuf statement partly read, “The present administration told us eight years ago that they want to fight corruption, they want to secure this nation and they want to improve the economy, all they have done so far is the opposite.
