The Northern Elders Forum, NEF, has advised the next political party that will take over government at the national level to prepare itself for a very challenging task of fixing the country.
NEF spokesman, Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, made the call on Monday during an interview on Channels TV.
According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari’s APC-led government would have completely wrecked Nigeria by 2023 with the growing insecurity and economic woes.
Baba-Ahmed also blamed the nation’s ruling elite for the failure of the country. He said the country’s current challenges were not just as a result of banditry and kidnapping activities but also leadership failure.
He said; “What are you going to do with 2023 because between now and 2023, APC would have completely wrecked this country?
You are going to take over a country that has been completely destroyed by a party that has been substantially produced by the PDP and how are you going to fix this country? What’s your blueprint for what happens to Nigeria in 2023?”
Nigeria has been experiencing a series of security threats ranging from terrorism, kidnapping and banditry as well as economic and ethno-religious issues.
