Member representing Ohaji/Egbema/Oguta/Oru West federal constituency, Goodluck Nana Opiah, has flayed President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, for not living up to their promises to Nigerians since it took over power about one year ago.
Opiah made the assertion yesterday in a keynote address at St Luke’s Anglican Church, Eziorsu, Diocese on the Lake, to mark the end of the third session of the third synod.
The lawmaker said Nigerians are distrustful of the current leadership even as they are watching the performance of all levels of government with disillusionment.
The former speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, who spoke on the topic, “The Role of the Political class in Proffering Solutions to the Problems of Nigeria”, pointed out that Nigerians are so disillusioned and disenchanted that they are beginning to ask if the trend of events represent the ‘change’ promised them.
He said the situation seems to be worse in Imo State because of the APC’s style of governance.
Opiah noted that in view of the current trend and considering the pre-election campaign theatrics of the ruling party which was the major opposition party in the last dispensation, Nigerians need no soothsayer to know that the APC means “All Promises Cancelled.”
According to him, decay of the institutional framework and declining capacity for sustained economic development require urgent institutional reforms to build up the socio-economic management ability, disclosing that if any government wants to succeed in delivering its promises to the people, it must ensure accountability, transparency and good governance.
He opined that the current development crisis in Nigeria can be attributed to a history of poor governance characterised by corruption and social injustice. He outlined the ingredients of good governance to include safety and the rule of law, participation and human rights, sustainable economic opportunity and human development.
On the way forward, the federal legislator called for reforms in all sectors of the country, saying public institutions must be merit-driven.
