The All Progressive Congress (APC) has said that in 2020, Nigerians should expect more democratic dividends from President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
This was contained in a statement by Lanre Issa-Onilu, spokesman of the party, on Tuesday. He said that Buhari is committed to executing more programmes in the new year.
“With our country’s landmark return to the January-December budget cycle – a feat achieved by the APC-led national assembly and executive after 16 years of the PDP failure, Nigerians are assured that the ongoing massive infrastructural development covering the rail, road, agriculture, aviation, port, education and health sectors would be given further fillip,” the statement read.
“The President Muhammadu Buhari government is vigorously tackling and solving the social, economic and security challenges our country faces one after the other. Government’s successes in plugging revenue leakages, checking violent extremism, oil sector reforms, anti-corruption, economic diversification, curbing waste, infrastructure development among other achievements are profound testament.
“The Party assures all compatriots that the faithful execution of policies and programmes of this current administration would be further intensified in this New Year.
“We acknowledge and hold dear the trust and faith Nigerians have placed in the APC-led Federal Government. We will not let Nigerians down. We urge Nigerians to also play their part by cooperating with the government to achieve its development plans for our shared progress.
“Finally, to our teeming members and supporters, our great party remains a progressive, strong, formidable and popular political unit delivering pro-people policies and repositioning our country through our elected and appointed officials at federal, state and local government levels. We urge our members to support and cooperate with the recently-constituted National Reconciliation Committee which is empowered to address grievances of party members and resolve existing conflicts, all with a view to fostering unity and oneness within the party across the country.”
