SIR, DO YOU THINK ALL IS WELL IN THE APC AS WE SPEAK?

For now, and at the executive level, the presidency is trying. At least we are seeing that things are beginning to take shape in the country. We can simply congratulate him for the feat.

Honestly, we now have a direction, especially when you remember all that was wrong when he came on board. You would recall the high level of security challenges and the poor economic situation in the country. But owing to the president’s efforts, things are been tackled. When the president spoke last week, he gave a promise that he would not allow hoodlums to hold the country to ransom. He also vowed that there would be no more payments for kidnappings and that the government would get hold of anybody or group(s) that may want to disorganize the country.

So, as it is now the ruling APC is doing well for the country and the people. However, there is need for improvement in order to better the lots of the citizens.
