The Chairman of the All Progressive Congress in Kano State, Hussaini Mairiga on monday lashed out on President Muhammedu Buhari, describing him as a total failure.
Mr. Mairiga who spoke with journalist in Kano said, “From the look of things, President Buhari has betrayed the confidence of the Nigerian masses who voted for him massively into power.
The Chairman who is known for his bluntness, expressed worry that after one year of the Buhari administration in power, poverty in the country has reached an unprecedented high.
“It was not an exaggeration that members of many families in the country go to bed without at least one square meal while others had fled their homes because they could no longer provide the basic needs of life for their loved ones.”
He lamented that while a bag of rice is now sold for N16, 000, prices of other commodities had trippled at a time ordinary Nigerians did not have money to make a living.

Another disturbing scenario according to the APC Chairman, was that those around the president including his ministers, has refused to tell him the truth and advice him on the reality on ground.
He reminded the president of his campaign promises, stating that he did not like the way the masses were allowed to wallow in destitution and penury.
The APC Chairman advised the president to stop deceiving Nigerians that the country has no money, whereas on monthly basis the federal and states government continued to enjoy boost in their allocation.
Mr. Mairiga asked the federal government to urgently open all the closed borders with other countries to allow food into the country.
He warned that if urgent steps were not taken to address the present situation in the country, Nigerians would soon begin to die of hunger on the streets.
