A former senator representing Kogi Central, Dino Melaye, on Tuesday, said all past and present public office holders in the country, including himself, have failed.
Melaye, in a tweet, bemoaned the economic situation of the country, following decades of prosperity from international oil trade.
In March, the international oil benchmark, Brent crude, plunged to its cheapest in 18 years as it traded around $22 per barrel
According to the former senator, despite the gains made from over half a century of oil trade, Nigeria could not successfully feed its citizens for two out of the five weeks the country was on lockdown on the order of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd).
He tweeted, “Everyone who held and is holding any political office in Nigeria, whether elective or appointed, including me, has failed.
“We sold crude oil for 64 years but we couldn’t feed our citizens for just two weeks of lockdown. Well, the God of the poor will judge us all. It’s time to reboot,” the former senator stated.
