Professor Jega had said during an interview on the BBC Hausa Service on August 2, 2021 that both PDP and APC had failed the nation, and advised Nigerians not to entrust either of them with their mandate again.

This was one of the contentions of the director-general of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, Salihu Moh. Lukman, in an opinion piece he entitled ‘Nigerian Politics and Question of National Unity’

Speaking to journalists after the Progressives Governors’ Forum meeting held in Abuja on Wednesday, chairman of the forum and Kebbi State Governor, Senator Atiku Bagudu, appreciated the success recorded by the Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC), despite the constraints occasioned by limited resources.

Apparently miffed by PDP’s reaction to President Buhari’s well publicized interview on Arise Television, Lukman says it is a ‘patently political fact’ that the opposition party is efficient only at mismanaging public resources; and that without any attempt to reform itself, its leaders want to take advantage of the challenges facing Nigerians to win elections.
