National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, John Odigie-Oyegun, does not believe the party can fix Nigeria’s problems in eight years, due to what he called the level of rot in the country.
He said the current economic and other challenges bedeviling Nigeria will be extremely difficult to resolve.
”I have been severely criticised for saying that the change we stand for is something that can be accomplished and completed in the life of our present four-year tenure. It will not be completed even in eight years,” the APC chairman said while speaking at the party’s headquarters in Abuja.
Oyegun said Nigeria is in a very difficult and troubling times.
”President Muhammadu Buhari is trying strenuously to rebuild the shattered economy, to diversify our economic potential, which up till now, most unfortunately, rested solely and unintelligently on crude oil.”
According to him, the deprivations of Nigerians all over the country was as a result of the collapsed economy in addition to the collapse in the crude oil market.
”The task is enormous, challenging and worth fighting for. We stand on the threshold of history. God put this nation called Nigeria together for a purpose and he does not make mistake. We have a manifest destiny,” the APC chieftain added.topics from
