The African Democratic Congress (ADC), has faulted the Federal Government (FG) for the level of insecurity in the country, stating that the lives of citizens are unbearable due to failed leadership.

Director-General ADC Campaign Council, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman made this accusation on Wednesday, at a press conference in Abuja.

Suleiman expressed worry over the incessant state of insecurity in the country, lamenting, the blood of innocent citizens being constantly shed in all parts of the nation.

The Director General stressed that past rulers made sacrifices to build the nation despite the diversity, adding, that the ruling party lack the power to rule as their intention into positions of authority is based on selfish interest.

“Our past leaders carved a glorious path for our development as a people, and  many of them had to pay the supreme price for standing by the  Nigerian villager, the trader, the teacher, the farmer and the rich merchants so that every region competed with other regions, yet occasionally conceding ground and making massive sacrifices to keep the nation united and push it past critical turning points when national survival was threatened.


“Unfortunately, subsequent leadership roles slipped into the hands of people poorly-prepared and ill-equipped to lead, except for their ambitions for power and the acquisition of wealth.

“Many of our leaders today will prefer to leave the bulk of Nigerians in poverty, fighting each other so that they can continue to manipulate them during elections, but not showing real commitment to reducing youth unemployment, insecurity and poverty, and have failed to deal with Nigerian problems, not to mention international issues.

“Consequently, our people have been left in the doldrum for too long and the country rudderless. The systemic corruption insecurity and rent collection syndrome have resulted to our dear country being the poverty capital of the world and our intelligence and defence institutions stripped naked. Nigeria has become one of the most unsafe nation with the blood of the innocent flow like rivers. Life is unbearable in the country because leadership has failed.

Suleiman stated that the ADC is set to correct the ill in governance as part of its “primary mission is to change the current Nigeria's political culture from one that serves only the leaders, to one which creates leaders that serve the people. 

“The authenticity in ADC handshake symbol is in the confidence that with love and thoughtful we can collectively design a comprehensive solution frames to the myriads of our today’s and future challenges with solid foundations that resonate with our diversity.


“Nigerians today need to hear the truth, it should be told that it has lost the energy and impetus to take up issues that were once the major focus of its leaders. With ADC that era is over,” he said.
