Timi Frank, a former deputy national publicity of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says Nigerians should “lower their expectations for true dividends of democracy.”

Frank was speaking on the back of the swearing in of 43 ministers by President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa on Wednesday.

In a statement on Thursday, the former APC spokesman called on Nigerians to brace up for more hardship, saying that the “ministers” are reeked of “incompetence”.

He noted that some of them have been guests to the country’s anti-graft agencies, adding that nothing positive could come out from them.

“Nigerians [should] lower their expectations for true dividends of democracy but rather should expect unprecedented and astronomical rise in the level of corruption,” he said.

“Seventy to 80 per cent of them have at one time or the other been guests of the anti-corruption agencies with most of them still battling corruption charges in court.

“I urge Nigerians to brace up for more hardships as incompetence have been enthroned.”

Frank also said Buhari has failed to keep to his promises.

“Buhari told Nigerians in 2015 that he will cut his salary by 50 percent, reduce the aircraft in the presidential fleet before he became President. He also said he would reduce the cars in the Presidential convoy,” he said.

“But Nigerians can testify that this was never done. He neither reduced his salary, aircraft in the presidential fleet nor cars in his convoy.

“It is clear that Nigeria cannot move forward under this circumstances because darkness and light have nothing in common.”

Less than two weeks ago, Frank had revealed how he and some unidentified people sabotaged the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

    Since you have written off Buhari, then start preparing for 2023. Don’t repeat what you and your friends did to Goodluck Jonathan. We have to start learning how to develop our democracy to resemble the ones in Western countries.
