Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, has criticised President Goodluck Jonathan over what it described as failure of a timely and robust response to the recent catalogue of woes and national calamities.

In a statement, yesterday, by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party wondered how else the administration’s lack of capacity to be proactive could be described.

ACN said: “The continued bungling of the Boko Haram insurgency, which is harvesting more deaths almost on a daily basis, the unstoppable carnage on our roads, the executive somersaults of the administration on policy issues and, in general, the slow, unfocused and uncertain responses of government to issues depict a government on internship.

“The closure of the Lokoja-Abuja highway, which had cut off Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city, due to flooding of roads and bridges along the Abuja-Lokoja highway, signposts the extent of our decayed national infrastructure and exposes the incapable hands entrusted to salvage them.”

On the President’s reaction to the flood disaster, the party said: “However, even worse is the fact that the President has not deemed it fit to comment on this disaster, neither has there been any visit by a federal minister or any co-coordinated response to the disaster from the central government.”
