NCF frowns at internal wrangling in govt, state of nation
The Nigeria Consultative Front (NCF), a new political movement, has frowned at the internal wrangling, brickbats and the negative effect such is having on the country under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The front, therefore, called for mass action by Nigerians against these happenings to reverse the trend and rescue the country.
In a statement signed by Head, Public Affairs Bureau, Mallam Dr. Tanko Yunusa, the group said never in the country’s history has a government been so chaotic that the centre can no longer hold.
The group said: “The macabre dance between the Minister of Niger Delta, Senator Godswill Akpabio and former managing director of the interim management committee of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Dr. Joi Nuineh, over corruption allegations in the agency is mind boggling.
“Never in the country’s history has governance been reduced to a comic show of sex escapades and the number of husbands a female government official has had, thereby fouling the airwaves of governance with needless ‘soap opera.’
“As if that was not enough, the theatrics and hoopla about the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFFC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu over allegation of sharp and underhand practices has also dramatically pitched him against the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, spiralling into supremacy and survival battle, which has heavily distracted governance and heat up the polity.”
The group also decried a recent drama, when the Minister of Labour, Dr. Chris Ngige, singlehandedly suspended the management of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF), thereby opening a can of worms, which has since been throwing up allegations and counter allegations in which Ngige himself has been accused of padding the NSITF 2020 budget with N1.2b and the purchase of five SUVs.
“We, therefore, sadly wish to note that unless the chaotic self- serving monster controlling the Buhari regime is urgently resisted and tamed by the Nigerian people, it will be very difficult for the country to know stability and good governance during the remaining period of Buhari’s administration,” NCF said.
The group is particularly piqued that Nigeria presently appears rudderless, due to the much-talked about hijack of government by a ruthless cabal that does not mean well for the country.
