Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Johannesburg, South Africa, Ekos Akpobabayen, has called on the Federal Government to be quick in restoring hope to Nigerians, saying that time was running out for the All Progressives Congress, APC-led government.
Akpobabayen, who spoke at a parley, said: “I am pleading with and admonishing them not to take the patient nature of Nigerians for granted. This suffering is persistently piercing the bones by the day, and there seems to be no hope of recovery in sight.
“The world out there is watching and are in full expectation to actually see the ‘change’ that was promised Nigerians. Failure will be more disastrous for our already battered image.
“It still baffles me why this government should prefer to fail rather than consult widely, with a view to getting the best brains that will help save this country from depression looming at the moment.”
On his part, the Director of Communications, PDP South Africa, Emeka Johnson, used the opportunity to call on PDP members in the Diaspora to begin to contribute evenly in the discourse of governance back home.
He said: “It has become urgently needful for Presi-dent Muhammadu Buhari to reshuffle his ailing cabinet and consider giving more slots to women in the affairs of his government.”
