At an interactive session with journalists in his Lagos residence on Tuesday, Agbakoba accused the federal government of insensitivity to the plight of the Nigerian masses.

He said there was a deep disconnect between government and the people.

According to him, “But we have to have the confidence that those who are making us go through pains are also going through pain. It’s got to be reciprocal. But if we are going through pains, I don’t know why they smile at the Federal Executive Council meetings. I don’t know why they smile, it is a wrong impression.

“We are looking at them on TVs, in the papers, they need to get real, they need to come down to earth and feel the pains that we are feeling, because it is only we are feeling the pains.

“If they feel the pain like most of us are feeling it, they would get real. But a lot of them don’t know what the pain the masses are going through because they are served free food.”
