The All Progressives Congress (APC) has tasked Nigerians to be patient with president Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in reaction to the 2018 Budget Proposal presentation on Tuesday.

The APC chairman, John Oyegun is optimistic that the 2018 budget will take care of the needs of all Nigerians, but was quick to add that the process of rebuilding an economy often came with some form of hardship, which he said will soon be over.

“The 2018 budget proposal presented by President Muhammadu Buhari was well received, we are all happy. The side attraction is that the President has demonstrated his determination to move the country forward.

“We are rebuilding the nation’s economy. The economy collapsed, oil price collapsed, everything is as if it is starting afresh. It takes time and it creates a lot of hardship.

“We are appealing to Nigerians to be patient because at the end of the day we are going to have a country we will be proud of and an economy that will offer all Nigerians the opportunity to grow.

Buhari proposed N8.6trn for the 2018 financial year to the Joint Session of the National Assembly on Tuesday.
