In what looks like a vote of confidence on the current administration, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has assured President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC-led federal government of the support of the Yoruba and the entire South-West zone.
Speaking at the South-West zonal meeting of National Committee of Buhari Support Groups (NCBSG) in Lagos, Tinubu, who was represented by the APC National Vice Chairman (South-West), Chief Pius Akinyelure, expressed concern over the level of decay in the nation’s economy before the change in government and called on Nigerians to stay focused and support the president as he continues to rebuild the nation.
“We are doing the best we can, with the little resources we have, to move the nation forward. We need people’s support to turn things around in the country,” he said.
In his response, President Buhari, represented by Senator Ajayi Boroffice, charged Nigerians on positive change. He said the change message must be carried to the nooks and crannies of the country.
While appreciating various groups and individuals working for his success, the president expressed optimism that Nigerians would laugh and celebrate soon.
National Secretary of the group, Otunba 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 would be educated on the activities of government. The current administration is doing a lot to rebuild the economy, stop corruption and provide infrastructure, but for selfish interest, some individuals and organisations are bent on frustrating its effort. The time has come to put the record straight by educating our people,” he said.
