APC Admits Things Are Hard Economically
“Economically, things are difficult; there is no question about it. But in spite of that, people of your quality sat down and still want to join the boat because you have seen the future and you know the future belongs to a changed country. A country that produces, not only consumes.
National Chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun, stated this in Abuja when he received political leaders from Delta Central Senatorial District, who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the APC.
He said the present administration was building a new economic model which he said would be sustainable.
Oyegun said, “In the last 16 years of previous administrations, we just consumed. Thank God this nation brought President Buhari at the point it was about to collapse and all we are doing today is putting the pieces back together again.
“It is a difficult experience and as a result of that our people are going through some hardship. But there is no question at all that you can see the silver lining that is on the way.
“By the end of this year, we will be net exporters of rice. Today we have started formally to export yam. Today we are about certain that all the grains in this country can be produced locally. These are all parts of the building blocks towards the Nigeria that we foresee in another year or two.”
