Former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has said that Nigeria’s democracy has moved backward from the June 12 era.

“To my mind, we have moved backward from June 12 in terms of our appreciation, practice, and acceptance of true democracy.

“I believe it is a process, we have made mistakes, we are learning and we are lucky that today we have a President like Muhammadu Buhari, he has led the benchmark.”

Speaking as a guest on Channels Television’s Lunchtime Politics Programme, Chief Odigie-Oyegun commended the president for rebuilding the nation and stabilising the economy in the last four years of his administration.

“We’ve been through a bad path, again the fortune of having President Muhammadu Buhari.

“He has spent four years stabilising the economy, rebuilding the foundation of this nation.

“He has spent four years putting in place the structures that will propel us forward in this second term.”

The former APC chairman emphasised that the President has rebuilt and stabilised the economy, which has put the country in a situation to move forward.

He admitted that certain issues are still affecting the country’s development and progress such as poverty, unemployment, insecurity among others.

Oyegun also assured Nigerians that the next four years will be better than the previous years which other administrations can continue from where he stopped. (Channels TV)
