Why Nigerians Are Not ‘feeling’ APC Change – Senator Dino Melaye by Handsome777: 1:07pm On Feb 17
Senator Dino Melaye has said the reason Nigerians are yet to feel the impact of change promised by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is because of the civil servants who according to him, are responsible for major corruption in the country and have refused to repent and internalize the change mantra within their hearts.

Melaye, who stated this during a chat with the media in Abuja, noted that change mantra was not about the APC as a political party but about the way Nigerians conduct themselves and operate government agencies and activities.

He urged civil servants, politicians and those in positions of authority to become born-again and begin to act positively towards ameliorating the mistakes of the past so that the impact of the change mantra can be felt by the people.

The senator also said that people who abuse processes and the laws of the land must be questioned by Nigerians, pointing-out that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, ought to have resigned had Nigerians come out of their cocoons to question his indictment in the N250 million grass-cutting scandal in the North-East.

He said: “The change mantra is not about the All Progressives Congress (APC). The civil servants who are responsible for major corruption in the system are still the same people.

“The message of change is not only to members of the APC. It is to Nigeria and Nigerians on how we conduct ourselves; and, how we operate government agencies and activities.

“Nigerians, we must have attitudinal change, we must decide that the country is in recession now and we are approaching depression so we must begin to take the right steps inwardly.

“Civil servants in this country, politicians, those who find themselves in positions of authority must become born-again, and begin to act positively towards ameliorating our past.

“I have insisted that on his honour the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, ought to have resigned by now like I said the last time, he should be reciting the psalms and asking for mercy.

“But unfortunately, it is when we start punishing criminals in power, when we start punishing thieves in power, when Nigerians stop celebrating mediocrity and corruption that we will begin to have headway.

“These days, a man steals money from government and what you do is to celebrate him; then we cannot get out of the woods. Let me say that in an unjust society, silence is a crime.

“People who abuse processes and the laws of the land must be questioned. We must all get out of cocoons and begin to ask questions. It is laughable that Babachir Lawal is still seating in council as SGF. I mean, it does not portray any sense of responsibility at any level.

“I want to say that not only him but every other thief in power must be questioned. Nigerians must demonstrate the capacity to ask questions. If I. Dino Melaye, is found wanting, Nigerians should come out and ask me questions. They should be bold to tell me that I have abused my oath of office.”

The reason is that the zombies no get sense

This is what baffles me

Zombies are dying of hunger

They can't send their children to school

They can't eat 3 square meal

They can't buy fuel

They can feel the dying economy

They can't buy a cup of garri

But they are still strongly supporting Buhari and they are still shouting Sai Baba

Abeg, who knows the native doctor who prepared that juju for Buhari ??

This is why i gave up on Nigerians, we don't care about hunger or the condition of the economy because the President is from our region or tribe

The Northern part of Nigeria has produced 5 Nigerian Presidents but they are still the poorest and the most underdeveloped tribe in the world, they would rather die of hunger than see the presidency leave their tribe

But sir the Civil servants wants to be like you, owning expensive customized car, house etc but their salary cannot achieve that in a life time so they had to do something about it. Maybe If people like you change the way you flaunt ill gotten wealth the civil servants might change truly.

Perhaps so called zombies are better educated ,use logic to understand the nature and cause of a problem with a view to formulate working pragmatic solution You on the other hand are so blinded by hate ,bigotry and tribalism and would prefer to have a looting president just because he is from your tribe
