Nigeria’s exit from economic recession is a clear testimony that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is working for the progress and prosperity of all citizens.
This is coming from the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, who addressed a solidarity rally on Tuesday at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
A statement issued by the State House Deputy Director (Information), Abiodun Oladunjoye, said the march was organised in support of the Federal Government by the Centre for Civil Society and Justice.
“You have chosen a very auspicious day for this solidarity rally. Earlier today, we were told that Nigeria had officially exited recession,” Adesina said.
“That shows that we have a government that is working for us, we have a government that is interested in our welfare, we have a government that is interested in our well-being.”
The President’s spokesman, who blamed the recession on some mistakes of the past, said the government tackled the problem in just about a year.
He assured the gathering that he would relay their message of support and solidarity on the unity of Nigeria to President Buhari.
“You know the President swore to uphold the Constitution and the Constitution recognises Nigeria as one indissoluble entity. The President has sworn to keep the unity of the country and whatever it takes; he will keep to that pledge,” he said.
The presidential aide made a U-turn when he advised those “beating the drums of separation” to keep their peace, reiterating government’s resolve to preserve Nigeria’s unity, cohesion and togetherness.
Earlier in his remarks, the convener of the rally, Mr Goodluck Obi, said the group wholeheartedly supports President Buhari’s uncommon resolve to fix Nigeria.
Obi also called on the National Assembly and the judiciary to support the executive arm of government in the war against corruption, insurgency and economy recovery programmes.
He said, “We want to sound a note of warning to both organs of government, that we the Nigerian people would no longer allow our collective destiny to be toyed with like a game.”
“We are more than ever ready to mobilise the people to do the needful within the ambit of the law; enough is enough.” (Channels TV)
