LAGOS, Nigeria – The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has warned the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, that history will not be kind to it, if it fails to protect Nigerians from hunger during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This was included in a document by his media aide, Tunde Rahman.
Tinubu made it clear that the goal must be for citizens not to live with hunger.
“This situation presents a historic chance to establish a more beneficial social contract between the government and the governed.
“If we so utilize this moment, it will be recorded as a pivotal one in our national history. If we allow this moment to slip, history will not be obliged to treat us with great mercy.
“The worst of this dark potential can be avoided if the government is prepared to act in ways that not only feed people but protect the basic contours of our private-sector economy so that it can more quickly revive once normal conditions return,” Tinubu said.
Nigeria currently has over 400 cases of the coronavirus.
