Buhari’s strong ally, Salihu Tanko Yakasai dumps APC

The controversial former media aide to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, Salihu Tanko Yakassai, who is a strong political ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) citing the government’s failure to impact Nigerians’ lives.

Yakasai, who was suspended and finally sacked from the Ganduje government over his critical disposition on the Buhari administration, told journalists on Monday that he has reached a point of no return in dumping the ruling APC for betraying the trust of Nigerians.

He said, “I have therefore reached a point in my life, where I have decided to embark on a new political journey to ensure that I stick to my beliefs and principles, that I’m today, 21 March 2022. exiting from the party.

“Failure, our people say is an orphan especially when everyone recognises it as such, no one in his right mind wants to associate with failure, today it is no longer a story that APC is a total failure that should not be associated with”.

Salihu said, “However, regrettably those in the ruling APC, those in power do not see themselves as having failed Nigerians, on the contrary, they perceived themselves as performing excellently, they douse themselves in self-praise, self-congratulations and self-centred behaviour in public offices.

“Many people today in Nigeria, will rightly see their conduct as delusional while the privileged ones in the office today hardly notice the reality surrounding the lives of ordinary citizens.

“Today no food, no potable water, no stable power supply, no jobs for the youths, no regular salary for pubic servants, no pensions and gratuity paid, no respect for government agreement with university teachers, no control over inflation, no security of lives and properties and no defeats of the stubborn insurgency, that is the characteristics of the government.”

Salihu Tanko Yakasai explained that he joined the APC to speak truth to power and he tries to live the truth he speaks no matter the cost, “It was on the spirit of that I vehemently criticized the PDP-led government, now it will hypocritical of me to keep quiet when our own APC government and party have underperformed.”

He said that he had made several attempts to highlight some of these failures from the inside but unfortunately amends were not made, while those in power were averse to his corrective steps.
