Popular singer and activist, Charly Boy, has voiced his concern over the current state of affairs in Nigeria, suggesting that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is responsible for the prevailing hunger and hopelessness experienced by Nigerians.
In a post on his social media handle, Charly Boy expressed his disappointment, stating, “See as APC dey wicked us with hunger and hopelessness. Dia Fathers.”
Charly Boy’s statement comes at a time when the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has released a report highlighting Nigeria’s deepening economic crisis.
The report, titled ‘Review of Nigeria’s Post Financing Assessment’ by the IMF Executive Board, raises concerns about the stagnant per-capita growth, widespread poverty, and severe food insecurity, which have further exacerbated the cost-of-living crisis in the country.
In response to these concerns, President Bola Tinubu has reassured Nigerians that his government is committed to addressing the issue of food production and becoming a net exporter.
Tinubu made this statement during a meeting with a delegation from the Global Tijaniyya Movement, led by Khalifa Muhammad Mahe Niass, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The President’s assurance comes amidst rising hunger and hardship in the country. The current economic situation in Nigeria has undoubtedly taken a toll on the lives of ordinary citizens, with many struggling to make ends meet.
Charly Boy’s criticism of the ruling party resonates with the frustrations felt by Nigerians who are grappling with the effects of inflation, unemployment, and a lack of basic amenities.
