The ‘All Progressives Congress (APC)’ has acknowledged that there is hardship in the country but has assured Nigerians that President Buhari is working round the clock to solve this problem.
A spokesman for the party, ‘Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi’ made this statement in an interview with journalists in Kwara state capital, Ilorin.
