APC Punishing Nigerians With Hunger, Despair – Charly Boy

Popular Nigerian singer, entertainer and activist, Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa, professionally known as Charly Boy, has suggested that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), is punishing Nigerians with hunger and hopelessness.

Charly Boy made the assertion in a post on his X handle on Monday which was sighted by Africa Today News, New York.

“See as APC dey wicked us with hunger and hopelessness. Dia Fathers,” he wrote.

His statement is coming amid the International Monetary Fund, IMF, report that Nigeria is experiencing a deepening economic crisis.

IMF in a recently published report titled ‘Review of Nigeria’s Post Financing Assessment’ by the IMF Executive Board, expressed concern that the stagnant per-capita growth, widespread poverty, and severe food insecurity have further intensified the persistent cost-of-living crisis in Nigeria.

However, President Bola Tinubu said his government will do everything possible to expand food production and become a net exporter amid rising hunger and hardship in the country.

Tinubu gave the assurance in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, after a delegation from the Global Tijaniyya Movement, led by Khalifa Muhammad Mahe Niass, visited him at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

In another report, Shina Peller, a one-time House of Representatives member, urges President Bola Tinubu to implement initiatives aimed at enhancing the well-being of Nigerians.

As he makes his plea, protests have erupted in different parts of the country, fueled by the pervasive hardships and the mounting expenses of everyday life.

On Monday, a gathering of women seized control of the Minna-Bida Road around the famed Kpakungu Roundabout in Niger State, urging government action to tackle the prevailing hardships.

Following suit, Kano residents converged on the Katsina-Kano Road on Thursday to voice their dissatisfaction with the soaring cost of living in the country.
