Farouk Aliyu: We Sold Our ‘Change’ Agenda To Nigerians Out Of Ignorance by etokhana: 9:23am On Sep 24
A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Farouk Aliyu, has admitted to the party’s ignorance of the country’s situation before selling its “Change!” mantra to Nigerians ahead of the 2015 General Elections.

With President Muhammadu Buhari as its candidate and its assurance of better security and socio-economic development to citizens in record time, the party won the election thus ending the 16 years rule of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Mr Aliyu said inadequate knowledge of the situation in the country at the time was a mistake the APC made during the electioneering.

He stated this during a political discussion on “Politics Today ” on programme on Channels Television on Thursday.

He featured on the programme alongside a member of a newly formed political group, Rescue Nigeria Project, Usman Bugaje, and a chieftain of the PDP, Umar Ardo.

Mr Aliyu, a former Minority Leader of the House of Representatives under the defunct ANPP, described the APC’s promises as “assumptions” which have continued to serve as yardsticks to measure the performance of the Buhari administration in the last six years.

Although the administration has recorded some modest success in terms of infrastructural development, that did not come without mounting debt profile and worsening insecurity situation across the country.

“Sometimes, let me concede, when we were in the opposition, there were certain assumptions that you made out of ignorance, sometimes out of sheer mischief.

“When we were in the opposition, we came all round the country demonstrating against fuel hike. That time, we were ignorant, that is the truth, I agreed.


“When we came to realise and we later thought what Jonathan did was not wrong, in fact subsidy should go. Now we have come to know that there are certain indices that can’t continue to be subsidizing. This is the reality,” Mr Aliyu said, highlighting the depth of corruption among other assumptions the party made as opposition.

He dismissed the speculated dilemma of the APC to present a candidate as acceptable as Mr Buhari in the 2023 General Elections.

The former lawmaker said the incumbent president had never been the best candidate the ruling party could offer but a candidate favoured by the electoral system.

He also admitted to the corrupt tendencies of some of the party members despite the promise to wipe out corruption in the country.

“I’m not telling you that there is no corruption in the country; corruption is still going on but this time around, you dare not sit and discuss corruption in the open.

“Back in the days, you sat around the table and you shared contracts, money and so on when PDP was in government.

“I’m not telling you that there are no corrupt people in our government, absolutely there are! Some of them are already being investigated,” Mr Aliyu said.

“As far as Nigeria is concerned Buhari only appointed our sons into positions.....but Northerners are being killed by terrorists & armed bandits without solution in sight.

Gen.Buhari, yes! We northerners voted for him, the massive votes that came out from North was the reason why he is President of this country now.We went up to America to influence the United State’s Government to support the cause of change in Nigeria..."


We spoke to them about insecurity and corruption in this country of which Buhari is always talking about, but unfortunately, Buhari in five years hasn’t done enough to remedy the situation the previous government was accused of,” he stated bitterly

-More individuals and organisations now agree that the ruling party is the direct sponsor of insecurity and terrorism in Nigeria.

-We know very clearly that the Fulani terrorists in Nigeria were brought in from Mali, Sierra Leone, etc., by the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2015 elections as was confessed by Alhaji Kawu Baraje, former APC leading national chieftain.

-Former President Olusegun Obasanjo previously declared: “Fulanisation, Islamisation Agenda Going On In Nigeria”.

-We know that Nigerian security forces know exactly where the terrorists are camped as confirmed by Sheik Ahmad Gumi.


-We know that, “The Armed Forces are not neutral. They are conniving with the armed bandits that are killing people,” as concluded by Gen. Theophilus Danjuma.

We know that a herdsman arrested in Plateau State was armed with a Nigerian military rifle as confirmed by Police. Further, the Police gave the rifle number as HC2614. We also know that, the herdsmen repelled and captured in Ogoja had rifles from the Nigeria Army barracks in Ogoja as confirmed by Col. Nyiam (rtd).


Remember that Ayo Fayose insisted that, the Federal Government is now the employer and defender of terrorists. According to Jonah Jang, “What is happening is not a secret; people are being brought from Mali, Chad and all over to come and occupy native land”

We also know that the Presidency has insisted on developing RUGA settlements for these terrorist Fulani. Finally, Muhammadu Buhari, a retired Army General and a Fulani himself, is the Commander-in-Chief of these Armed Forces that are conniving with the armed Fulani bandits. Therefore, Buhari must be held responsible for the insecurity in Nigeria.

Show me one corrupt politician that APC has successfully jailed and I will show you a 90 years old grandmother that is still a virgin. They will jail you through the door and release you through the window.
PDP jailed Bode George, tafa balofun etc.
Jonathan left fuel at #85 in but those who shut down the nation has suddenly gone dumb as fuel now sells for #180.

Where is the vulturegriller, your mates are now admitting their faults and apologizing but you want to die with your pride and entitlement mentality. The one called hellanus has finally left this forum, hunger has caught up with him. The BMC crew must sure face Karma before 2023.

Believe at your own peril that it was ignorance!

It was very very deliberate that they rode on the mantra of change! To claim ignorance is an attempt to absolve themselves of their complete failure!

The wise ones know what’s up however the deliberately and genetically stupid ones who know themselves will believe this and gobble it up
