President Muhammadu Buhari has assured that the country will overcome its myriad of problems and Nigerians will eventually laugh and celebrate at last.
He made this known in his message at the South-West zonal meeting of the National Committee of Buhari Support Groups (NCBSG), held in Lagos, at the weekend.
Buhari, represented by Senator Boroffice Ajayi, however charged Nigerians to embrace the change mantra of his administration, admonishing that the positive message must be taken to all nooks and crannies of the country.
He thanked the various groups and individuals working for the success of his administration and for their unshaken believe in his ability to take the country out of the woods.
Passing a vote of confidence in the Federal Government, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu, assured of the support of the people of the South-West for President Buhari.
Declaring that the support of the zone for the president remained unshaken, the former governor of Lagos State expressed concern over what he said was the level of decay in the national economy before the APC came board.
Represented at the meeting by the APC National Vice Chairman (South-West), Chief Pius Akinyelure, Tinubu therefore called on Nigerians to stay focused and support the president as he continued with the process of rebuilding the country.
He assured that the Buhari administration would not relent in its effort to ensure a turn around in the national economy.
“South-West support for Buhari is unshaken despite the various challenges in the country, which we believe the present government is addressing. There is no doubt that there is no party in Nigeria that can surpass APC achievement in office.
“We are doing the best we can with the little resources we have to move the nation forward. We need people support to turn things around in the country,” he said.
Also speaking, Senator Rilwan Adesoji Akanbi said the Buhari administration has done a lot to address some of the problems facing the country and implored Nigerians to continue to support the APC-led government.
At the meeting where zonal and state coordinators of NCBSG were presented with appointment letters, its national secretary, Chief Abiodun Ajiboye, said the mission of NCBSG is to galvanise the public towards identifying with the current administration.
“We are aware of the place of communication in governance and we want to be part of that process through which the public will be educated about the activities of government. It is important for people to understand and appreciate what government is doing before buying into it.
“The current administration is doing a lot to rebuild the economy, burst corruption and provide infrastructure, but for selfish interest, some individuals and organisations are bent on frustrating the effort. Time has therefore come to put the record straight by educating our people,” he added.
