An elder statesman, Tanko Yakasai, has scored the Muhammadu Buhari administration low since the All Progressives Congress (APC) took over power at the centre in 2015.
He gave the assessment on Tuesday during his appearance on Channels Television’s breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily.
“Almost five years after the APC rule, nothing has changed,” Tanko said in reaction to the Independence Day speech by the President.
Elder Statesman, Tanko Yakasai, speaks during an interview on October 1, 2019.
He added, “But our mistake is that when we decided to support APC on their change slogan, we did not ask them ‘what will it cost you the change that you are talking about?’.
“We kept quiet, we supported them, we gave them almost everything they wanted; now after taking over power, we dint see any change.”
The elder statesman further called for the restructuring of the country, saying it would help build a better nation for the upcoming generations.
He also challenged the present administration to tackle the various challenges facing the country, especially security, unemployment and problems in the education sector among others.
