The All Progressives Congress, APC, on Monday, said Nigerians will achieve their potential under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, through prayer and patience.
The party in a statement by its National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni in Abuja, accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of being responsible for the country’s current economic recession.
Buni, however, assured Nigerians that the Buhari-led administration would do all possible to salvage the country of its current woes.
According to the statement, “The APC assures Nigerians that the administration will pull the country out of the present hardships.
“With the support, cooperation, patience and prayers of Nigerians, the country will reach its deserved potential under our leadership.”
Buni urged the current administration to stay focus despite criticism on the state of the country’s economy by the PDP.
“In spite of the PDP’s orchestrated and feeble attempts to blackmail the current administration and twist facts, the reality remains that the prevailing socio-economic hardship being faced by Nigerians is a direct consequence of the mismanagement of the economy and unprecedented looting of the country’s commonwealth perpetrated under its watch.
“The PDP’s attempt to turn truth on its head is fraudulent, insensitive and an insult to Nigerians. The PDP must own up to its transgressions and apologise to Nigerians.
“Going forward, the urgent task before the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration is to restore the country’s battered economy back to health and all legitimate and innovative means are being employed to achieve this in the quickest possible time.
“Among other strategic economic agendas, diversification of the country’s economy is a priority for the administration.
“To this end, President Buhari is aggressively formulating and implementing policies aimed at diversifying Nigeria’s economy from oil to other sectors such as agriculture, mining and manufacturing,” he added.
