Endure the suffering for more two years, APC senator tells Nigerians

Senator Orji Kalu has told Nigerians who are suffering to endure for more two to three years while the All Progressive Congress (APC) administration continues to fix the country.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Abia North lawmaker made the comments on Tuesday during his visit to the chairperson of the ruling party in Ebonyi State, Stanley Okoro-Emegha.

Although he acknowledged that Nigerians were suffering due to the battering of the economy, Mr Kalu urged the citizens to give President Bola Tinubu more two to three years to fix the country and restore its lost glory.

The senator said the APC that has been in power for over eight years was still righting the wrongs inherited from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“The APC government is cutting the cloth into pieces. Before you sew a cloth you will first cut it into pieces; so, Tinubu is busy cutting the cloth into pieces,” he said. “So, give us another three years or two years; people are suffering. We understand that, give us more two years for the cloth we want to sew to be sewn very well.”

The APC chieftain also revealed why the National Assembly increased the estimates of the 2024 budget.

“We said that we are going to do a census and Nigeria has put several billions of naira in planning for the national census in 2023, and if we did not vote money for the conduct of the exercise, Nigeria will be losing about N289 billion,” he said.

The senator urged Nigerian youths to be agents of positive change, by shunning social vices and any act that is capable of breaching the peace and security of the country.
