APC has failed Nigerians — Dalung, ex-Sports minister * Says God will punish him for criticising Jonathan, keeping mum over current misrule

APC has failed Nigerians — Dalung, ex-Sports minister

* Says God will punish him for criticising Jonathan, keeping mum over current misrule

Former Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, said, yesterday, that All Progressives Congress, APC, has failed Nigerians.

Speaking in an interview with the Hausa section of the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, Dalung said the government had not fulfilled its promises to Nigerians.

He said despite being a member of the APC, it was his responsibility to speak out if things were not right.

Lamenting the high rate of insecurity in the north, the former minister said the situation was such that people fast and pray for days before embarking on a journey.

According to him, farmers had to pay gunmen before going to the farm and nobody has ever experienced this kind of situation.

Dalung said: “In the north, if you are a Muslim and you want to travel, you must pray, fast for days before embarking on the journey. If you are a Christian and you want to travel, you must fast and pray for days before you travel.

“Even if the journey is successful, you will still go to the hospital because of high blood pressure arising from fear during the journey. We have never experienced this kind of situation. Imagine in the north, before you go to your farm, you will have to pay gunmen to allow you farm. If you want to harvest your farm produce, you will still have to pay gunmen before they allow you to harvest.

“So how can there be farming in the north? We have never experienced this kind of situation. It is our APC government, but this government has not addressed the needs of Nigerians.

‘’It is our government, but if we are not doing the correct thing, it is our responsibility to speak out because we spoke against some people in the past and we need to speak to ourselves too.”

He said the failure of the APC government was so glaring that “everybody knows.”

Dalung said he was not afraid to speak out, insisting that even if he was the president, he will still speak, if things were not going well.

He said: “You know me and everybody in Nigeria knows me. Whether I am still a minister, even if I am the president, whatever I see that is not right, I must speak out, not because of myself, but in the interest of the generality of the people.

“If for example, Solomon Dalung collapses and dies today, without speaking out against what is happening today, don’t you think God will question me for abusing Jonathan and not speaking out on our failure? That is what I am afraid of, not anybody.

“Our party, the, APC, is like a dying party because, as I am talking to you right now, they have dissolved the party completely, it has no members, even the President is not a member.

“The caretaker committees are the members of the party, the party has no members because membership of everybody has been dissolved. So, right now, we are not members of APC until they bring membership cards for us to join the party, like army recruitment.”
