Nigerians Lucky To Have Buhari As President At This Time – Bello

Gov. Bello-PMBGovernor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state has said the All Progressives Congress, APC, emerged government at the center during the “worst” and most period in the history of the country.
He, however, said with the cooperation and resilience of the people, the situation was surmountable.
Bello stated this on Sunday in a state-wide broadcast to the people of the state on Democracy Day.
In the broadcast, the governor said Nigerians should count themselves lucky to have President Muhammadu Buhari at the helm of affairs of the country because when the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was in power, it “mismanaged our hard-earned democracy”.
“With much hopes and high expectations we installed the Peoples Democratic Party as ruling party in 1999. Unfortunately, the PDP soon became a monster of the sort that was once aptly described as a ‘nest of vipers’. The PDP and her members grossly mismanaged our hard-earned Democracy. After about 16 disastrous PDP years, ordinary Nigerians, uniting around the APC and Hurricane Buhari, again swept them out of the corridors of power and into the dustbin of history, hopefully to be seen no more”, Gov. Bello said.
He added that “There is no denying the fact that the APC came to power at probably the worst time, socio-economically speaking, for Nigeria and Nigerians. With the steep slid in the global prices of Crude Oil which is the mainstay of our economy, governance has become more challenging than usual. It is indeed a wonder that Mr. President and his Team have been able to starve off a full-blown recession given the circumstances”.
Mr. Bello, however, urged Nigerians to look forward to the future of the country with optimism and enthusiasm, pointing out that President Buhari is laying the foundations for a mega structure that would grow into the Nigeria of our dreams.
