The administration of President Bola Tinubu, under the umbrella of the All Progressives Congress (APC) came into power with numerous promises leaving Nigerians swimming in expectations.

As Tinubu walked majestically to mount the podium during his inauguration, many Nigerians, with broad smiles on their faces, reminisced on his achievements in Lagos.

We Have Really Failed Nigerians – APC Ex-Spokesman, Nabena Laments

Deep down their hearts, they were sure that; alas, the country is close to the dream politicians had promised since the country gained independence.

However, when Tinubu finally mounted the podium, to the shock of many, his first pronouncement was, “fuel subsidy is gone”.


This announcement was not included in Tinubu’s manifesto, but with faith, Nigerians with an open mind welcomed the idea.

Failed Promises

Hours after waving goodbye to fuel subsidy, the heat started.


Till now, Nigerians are still feeling that heat.

In fact, a former Deputy National Organising Secretary of the APC, Yekini Nabena, has alleged that the ruling party has failed Nigerians.

In an interview, Nabena lamented that the APC failed in its promises to Nigerians when it sought to take-over power from the People’s Democratic Party in 2015.

According to Nabena, the current exchange rate under the administration of President Bola Tinubu confirms that the ruling party has failed.


We Have Failed

The APC chieftain was reacting to the state of things under his party’s leadership.

He said: “Sincerely speaking, and if I should tell you the truth, based on the propaganda and the tension we gave the PDP, I thought that all our promises were supposed to have come to reality.


“If we base our judgment on the promises we gave Nigerians, I will say that we have really failed the country. We didn’t keep any part of the promises.

“For example, even the incumbent was part of the promise we gave to Nigerians in 2015 that we would make the exchange rate one dollar to one naira.

“The current exchange rate confirms that we have failed the country.


“Based on other indices and campaign promises we have failed to keep, I will admit that we have failed Nigerians, just like the PDP failed for the 16 years it was in charge, starting from 1999 to 2015.

“There is no difference between the PDP and APC in terms of failing Nigeria.

“Yes, the current administration is still less than one year old, but we may have to wait to see if they can perform magic.

“My concern is that the same strong forces and elements against the government are all still there.

“They are the same people that feel that the government belongs to them.

“They are the same strong and greedy elements that feel that they must always be in the corridors of power.”
