National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, says the party will continue to diversify the nation’s economy in order to create conducive working environment for Nigerians.
The former Lagos State governor, who has been handed the baton by President Muhammadu Buhari to pilot the election campaigns of the party in the forthcoming elections, stated that the APC remains committed to building a better country than the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a statement issued on Tuesday by his Media Officer, Mr Tunde Rahman, in Lagos, Tinubu noted that the administration of Buhari would continue to keep to their promise of reviving the economy and would not let the nation down.
He admonished Nigerians never to allow the PDP make a return to power in 2019 having destroyed the economy in the 16 years that the party was in the helm of affairs.
“We are diversifying the economy, giving basic food, health and educational assistance to the most needy among us, improving agricultural productivity so that our farmers grow more to feed our increasing urban populations and also earn more to sustain their families.
“We are building needed infrastructure, including electricity and water, because we realise a national economy cannot grow beyond the capacity of the infrastructure that serves it.
“Meanwhile, the PDP clan wants to return to the days where they rule the nation like overlords. They want to own every industry and control everything that has anything to do with the creation of wealth.
“They seek to reverse the democratic maxim that government is the servant of the people. The PDP wants a situation where those in government are the masters while the people bow their heads to the interests of the mighty and the rich.
“We have seen this before. Those who really care about Nigeria care not to see such malign governance again,” he said.
