'We underestimated the damage to Nigeria when we offered change' - Sen Bala Ibn Na'allah

Deputy Leader of the Senate, Senator Bala Ibn Na'allah has said his party, APC, underestimated the damage done to Nigeria by the last administration when they offered change during the campaign last year. According to Na'allah, the present hardship being experienced by many Nigerians is as a result of the problems created by the last administration. He said this in a new interview with Daily Trust.
    "I am a Nigerian first before becoming a senator and therefore, if it worries Nigerians, I should equally be worried. But, the thing is that I don’t have the authority to speak on behalf of my party. It is equally true that I don’t have the authority to speak on behalf of the Senate. But, as a citizen and as a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, from the perspective I have seen things, it is obvious that the APC led federal government underestimated the damage that was done to the country when they offered themselves to provide the change Nigerians required.
