The All Progressives Congress (APC) has assured people that the golden years of Nigeria will return under the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari as the country celebrates the 6th decade of her independence from the British colony.
While felicitating with citizens on the country’s 60th independence anniversary, the APC in a statement by Yekini Nabena, the deputy national publicity secretary noted that as a nation, we are better together than we are apart.
"In spite of our inherited and current challenges, President Buhari's administration has made commendable strides on so many fronts, most significantly the fight against graft, diversifying and revamping the economy, curbing insurgency and emerging crimes, promoting positive values in our national life, strengthening our democratic institutions and processes and achieving a respectable international standing."
Nabena explained that as a nation, we are better than where we were and with determination, faith, and commitment to our fatherland.
He went on to note that in the last 60 years there is no doubt Nigeria has made great national history and nationalistic history makers from her economic and political evolution.
While saluting Nigeria's founding fathers who fought for the independence and members of the Armed Forces, many of whom have paid the supreme price, Nabena called on Nigerians to reflect on this moment.
The party congratulated Buhari, past and present leaders at every level, and all Nigerians.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a former national chairman of the APC John Odigie-Oyegun, expressed deep regrets over the state of things in Nigeria after 60 years of gaining independence.
Speaking with journalists in Benin City, the Edo state capital on Tuesday, September 29, Oyegun said things have gotten really bad and it would have been worse if not for the intervention of the current government.
However, the former APC chief admitted that due to dwindling resources, there is hunger, terrorism, unemployment and an unstable economy in the land and that the leadership is not giving the people much hope for a better tomorrow in the midst of their collective pain.
