African Action Congress (AAC) says the Buhari administration has lowered the standards of governance in Nigeria.

The opposition party said the president has not made significant progress in fulfilling his campaign promises in fighting corruption, insecurity and improving the economy.

In a statement issued on Friday, Femi Adeyeye, spokesperson of ACC, said the APC-led government has no reason to celebrate the country’s 61st independence anniversary because it has not improved the living conditions of Nigerians.

The party also described Buhari’s anti-corruption fight as “insincere, incompetent and short-sighted”.

“On security, the regime has scored below zero. If the map of Nigeria was placed on a table now, the regime can not boast of 10 per cent where it has control of and can assert sovereignty,” the statement reads.

“We now have a horrible situation whereby terrorists now do humanitarian works like NGOs, impose taxes on citizens and even declare a Governor for the people”

“The Buhari regime came in 2015 huffing and puffing about fighting corruption and mouthing slogans such as “if we don’t kill corruption, corruption will kill Nigeria.

“Rather than kill corruption, it has pampered the corrupt. The acclaimed incorruptible body language of the President now attracts every goat that is ready to eat the yam.

“It is glaring in the living conditions of Nigerians, the gross failure of the APC-led regime on Economy. To measure the failure of the regime on these three promises would require another measurement instrument, scale and unit. Buhari has lowered the standards of governance the more.”
