The chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun has condemned what he termed the hasty comments of one of Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s allies, Alhaji Kawu Baraje.

Odigie-Oyegun said Baraje would have asked the party leadership about its plans to alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians instead of playing to the gallery.

The APC party chairman said “We are working on a solution in the medium term; short term, yes we can make the fuel queues disappear but we don’t want the problem to re-occur and to do that, you have to work out a solution that will be long-lasting.

“If people want to play to the gallery they are at liberty to do so, they know why they are doing what they are doing.”

He also chided Baraje for threatening to leave the party, saying it was too early for such a decision.

Odigie-Oyegun also said “At the moment, we know these problems (power outages and fuel queues) are there because it is a case of corruption fighting back.

“We are not resting on our oars; we are working hard and very soon all these problems will be over. Nigerians will certainly win this battle.”

Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose recently described the government of President Muhammadu Buhari as a “one chance” bus.

President Buhari has also assured Nigerians that they have not entered a one chance bus, adding that the one chance drivers have been driven out of town.
