Nigeria’s Economy Now Growing Under Buhari, Says Oyegun
National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has said that Nigeria’s economy under President Muhammadu Buhari, has taken an unprecedented stage.
The APC national chairman spoke on Thursday at a reception where he was conferred with the Distinguished Political Leadership Award by the Benin National Congress in Benin, Edo State.
The former Edo State governor, who maintained that the Buhari administration met a “totally collapsed economy,” however, assured Nigerians that the President was doing his best to bring Nigeria back to the path of progress in order for the country to attain its vision.
“We took over a totally collapsed country. The hope is that things have started to solidify. Things have started to concretise; the economy has started to grow.
“It is not a switch; it is something that will take time. But once we are there, this nation will never experience the type of recession we had in the past,” he stated.
“Until Buhari, we were a laughing stock. Today, we are gaining respectability. So, it is important that we do not lose that momentum,” Odigie-Oyegun added.
