- The APC has insisted that President Buhari will turn the economy around
- The party said the president was committed to keeping his promise
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s promise to fix the economy still stands in spite of the current challenges.
The president has been criticised for the direction the economy has been going but the chairman of the ruling party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun insisted that the president would turn the economy around.
Daily Post reports that Oyegun gave the assurance while playing host to South-East Professional Women Association of Nigeria and Diaspora (SEPWAND) at the party headquarters in Abuja.
He said: “There is no question at all, that it’s been for some time now a matter of considerable regret the way, as a country, we have featured internationally, not just in the trans-Mediterranean human trafficking, but also illegal adoption centres among other social ills.
“There is no reason the country cannot run a proper adoption procedure such that those who genuinely need to adopt children be facilitated to legally do so. So that such adopted children can be monitored to curb abuses.
“We know these practices have been made worse by our unusual economic circumstance resulting from almost two decades of running the economy aground. We, as a party, have now been saddled with the responsibility of patching up a horrible situation that we did not create. The president Buhari administration is going all out to fix the economic base of the nation,” he reiterated.
