Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio has urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop presenting Nigeria in a bad light.

Akpabio made the comment on Thursday, June 9, 2016, while also recalling the events of June 9, 2015, when Senator Bukola Saraki became Senate President against the wishes of the APC.

“You (Saraki ) were jittery and sweating on that day. If we had wanted to take over the Senate, the PDP would have done that. We had the chance to take all the positions but because we are not greedy, we decided to allow the APC take over,” Akpabio said according to Vanguard.

“In the South-South, people have abandoned their homes because of activities of Niger Delta Avengers. The North is in turmoil; the South-East is boiling because of agitation. The South-West is the only peaceful area, but they still send mercenaries to other areas to fight.

“I want to urge the APC to market this country very well. The way the APC is saying the country is full of criminals, investors will not come here to invest. They must change the way they talk about Nigeria. Things need to change,” he added.

Meanwhile, Saraki has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to look outside the APC for solutions to Nigeria’s problems.
