A Yoruba community leader in Kaduna state, Alhaji Saka Yusuf has said president Goodluck Jonathan should listen to the yearning of the people and make positive decisions that will impact changes on the socio-economic hardship currently being experienced by the people, otherwise the people will be forced to look for a change.
Alhaji Yusuf who made this assertion yesterday in Kaduna while speaking to newsmen said the present hardship being experienced in the country is unacceptable and it is time for those who are at the helm of affairs to introduce programs that will impact directly on the wellbeing of the people.
“We have to tell each other the truth and that is, the present hardship in the country has not been witnessed since the independence.
Our people today are looking for what to eat, but they cannot find any.
Their children are out of school and those who manage to complete their education are roaming the streets.
“As if that is not enough we are faced with security challenges that has never been experienced in the country. Today our people are being massacred on daily basis and all we hear is that government is on top of the situation. “I am a trader because I don’t want to call myself a businessman that word has been bastardised. Everybody hides under the name to commit atrocity, but if you ask our politicians today what is their occupation they out rightly tell you that they are politicians. I don’t know when politics has become a trade mark. School dropouts today sees politics as the easiest way to get rich and that is why drug barons sponsor people into elective positions “But let me sound this note of warning, this will not continue, because Nigerians are crying to their creator on daily basis and we are about to hear the answer to our prayer, because there will be a change in the land and 2015 will determine that.
