The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the United Kingdom says it has launched a website to celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari’s achievements in the last five years.
Edith Nwachukwu, the chairperson, Membership Committee of the chapter, said this in a statement issued by Jacob Ogunseye, the APC UK publicity secretary, on Monday, Augst 24, in Abuja.
She expressed gratitude to Nigerians for being patient and keeping faith with the Buhari-led administration in the last five years in spite of challenges.
Nwachukwu said that the APC was not unmindful of the patience of Nigerians and assured that the party would not let them down, The Sun reports.
“Thank you for your patience thus far; we are not where we should be, but we have made considerable progress under the APC-led administration, together we can make Nigeria great again,’’ Nwachukwu said.
She, however, noted that in spite of the developmental strides of the president, the social media had been awash with fake news.
According to her, the administration’s Anchor Borrowers Programme (ABP) has made available more than N200 billion in funding to more than 1.5 million smallholder farmers of 16 different commodities.
She said they include rice, wheat, maize, cotton, cassava, poultry, beans and groundnut.
Nwachukwu said the programme had substantially raised local production of rice, doubling the production of paddy as well as milled rice between 2015 and 2019.
She said that between 2016 and 2019, more than 10 new rice mills came on stream in the country, while many of the existing mills had expanded their capacity with several new ones under construction.
Nwachukwu said the administration had launched a series of funding and capacity development initiatives designed to support small and medium scale businesses in the country.
She said while the administration had done a lot for businesses to succeed such as fighting corruption and curbing insecurity, it had also created enabling environment to attract foreign investors into the country.
According to her, President Buhari’s achievements since elected are visible in most parts of the federation.
Recall that Legit.ng had reported that Nigerians were given an update of the Lagos-Ibadan railway projects that has been embarked upon by the federal government.
In a video posted on its verified and official Twitter page, the APC in the UK revealed, especially to detractors of the Buhari-led government, that the project is not a scam as some think.
Legit.ng had also reported that Amaechi on Saturday, July 18, announced that the Itakpe/Warri rail line had been completed and is ready for commissioning.
Amaechi, widely regarded as the best minister in the Buhari administration, says plans were already in place to ensure the project is commissioned soon by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The 55-year old minister had led journalists, transport ministry officials, senior officials of the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC) and other stakeholders on an inspection of the site.
