A Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State, Comrade Shehu Sani, has described the government of President Goodluck Jonathan, as an affliction on the people of Nigeria.
Speaking at a sensitization workshop in Abuja on Tuesday organized by the Buhari/Osinbajo Youths Support Groups as well as the Proud Talakawa Movement (PTM), he said in the last 16 years of Jonathan's government, the country has suffered catastrophe.
He said for the past 16 years, what Nigerians witnessed has been the case of waste, corruption, mass murder of innocent citizens by the ineptitude and incompetence of the ruling party.
Sani said as a private citizen, he did his best to see how the government and Nigerians could bring an end to the Boko Haram insurgency.
"That informed my decision, in September 2011, to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, to the Boko Haram," he said.
"It had reached a point where I told the Boko Haram people to stop calling my phone because we were completely frustrated out. There was no interest on the side of the government, to end the insurgency," he added.
He said all Nigerians have a stake in democratic government and they are doing all they can because they believe that Nigeria can be great again.
He noted that Nigerians know the potentials of the APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari and what he is capable of doing for the country.
"But we should also know that he is not an Abraham Lincoln who will be contesting election every day. We have to do all we can, on the 28 of March.
