Muhammadu Buhari

The Social Integrity Network, (SINET) has condemned the federal government for approving June 6-8 as the date for the presidential primaries of th4 All Progressive Congress ( APC).

“Indirectly, civil servants working in the Nigeria’s capital city, Abuja have been granted another public holiday because APC is holding its national convention. This will not only cause avoidable hardship the downtrodden but it will also cripple the economy for three days because civil servants who are working in place such as; Head of Service,  Three Arms Zone, National Assembly,  Ministry of Justice, Foreign Affairs and Federal Secretariat among others will not be able to access their place of work.


“There is high rates of insecurity, poverty,  unemployment,  infrastructural decadence and strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities,  (ASUU) and the ruling part is not sensitivr to the current national situation. It is saddened and this calls for urgent attention.


“Even diplomats who are on foreign mission in Nigeria will not have good experience of our politicking is affecting serious business of nation-building and vis a vis international engagements.


“This is a clear sign of opeession and intimidation of the highest order because the Moshood Abiola Stadium can still be used just like the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) did recently. ”
