Bukola Saraki, a former Senate president, has urged Nigerians to vote out the All Progressives Congress in the next elections.

As he encouraged Nigerians to avoid violent protests in response to the new naira’s devaluation,

The former congressman urged citizens criticizing the lack of resources to hold onto their ire and vent it at the upcoming elections by voting the All Progressives Congress, or APC, out of power, in a post on his verified Facebook page on Wednesday.

Saraki claims that the current government has put a great deal of hardship on Nigerians.

He wrote, “I hereby appeal to the good people of Kwara State who went on protest earlier today over the continuing scarcity of petrol and the new currency notes to please maintain peace and remain calm.

“One can understand how these two negative developments have created untold hardship for our people. It is indeed a difficult time.

“However, while calling on the Kwara State Government to immediately introduce measures that will alleviate the suffering of the people, I want to urge our people that instead of embarking on any violent protest, they should express their grievances during the coming elections by voting against all the candidates of the party that has brought the needless crisis. Our people have endured a lot of hardship from this government.”

Saraki further stated that governance should be about solving problems confronting the people, stressing that the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has failed in that regard.

“Where the government has failed in that regard, the people should reject such a party and its candidates at the polls. And this should be done”
