Nigerians have been assured that the 2017 budget presented to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari few days ago would bring about the expected change in the economy.
This assurance was given by National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Bolaji Abdullahi, while addressing newsmen in Ilorin, Kwara State.
The ruling party’s spokesman noted that the appropriation bill would address the current hardship in the country, but pleaded with Nigerians to persevere saying that the hardship would be reduced next year.
According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari is doing his best economically to ensure stable and virile economy in the country.
He said the people will start seeing the real change they asked for from the party in 2015, when they ousted the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) through the ballot.
On the recent takeover of Sambisa Forest from Boko Haram by the Nigerian military, the former Minister of Sports showered praises on the government and the military.
“It is a great accomplishment by the Nigerian Army, the Federal Government and the All Progressives Congress led government, because you will recall that one of the cardinal pillars of our campaign in 2015 is to restore security to Nigeria and defeat boko haram.
“So this is a major accomplishment in that direction, and I want to congratulate Mr President for his doggedness and commitment and of course the gallant forces of Nigerian Army that fought this terrorism to a standstill,” he said.
