The All Progressives Congress, APC, have claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari has fulfilled his 2015 campaign promise by getting Nigeria out of the economic recession.
APC says the news of the country’s exit from recession by the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, is a big thumb up for Buhari’s led administration.
The party expressed this in a press statement on Wednesday signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi.
The statement reads; “APC also commends the National Assembly as it continues to work with the Executive on improving the economy and other areas of national life,” Mr. Abdullahi said.
“We commend the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari on the economic recovery efforts which have evidently started to yield fruits.
“Commendably, the country’s exit from recession was in tandem with the current administration’s forecast that the country will experience economic growth in 2017. This is another demonstration that the President Buhari APC-led administration is one that keeps its promises,” the party said.
It, however, said the government will not rest on its oars.
“APC thanks Nigerians for their patience, understanding and support for the President Buhari administration while the economy was in recession. Although there remains much more work to be done, we assure Nigerians that the administration remains focused on its effort to sustain the economy on the path of growth.
“As the President Buhari administration works assiduously to build a new solid foundation, credible image and pull the country out of the present hardships, we appeal for continued patience and the cooperation from Nigerians.”
The party said Mr. Buhari during the 2015 elections, promised to curb corruption, restore the economy and ensure the security of the nation; adding that he had kept his promise.
Contrary to that, Martin Onovo, a former presidential candidate of the National Conscience Party (NCP), disagreed with the Federal Government by saying the country has exited economic recession.
According to him, the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, deceived Nigerians by saying the country has exited economic recession….[Read more: APC deceived Nigerians by saying the country has exited economic recession – Onovo]
