The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the latest disclosure by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) respectively that the country has exited economic recession.
In a release on Wednesday, National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Bolaji Abdullahi said, “Nigerians will recall that during the 2015 elections, the APC promised to curb corruption, restore the economy and ensure security of the nation.
“We commend the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari on the economic recovery efforts which has evidently started to yield fruits. The APC also commends the National Assembly as it continues to work with the executive on improving the economy and other areas of national life.”
The country’s exit from recession according to the party is in tandem with the current administration’s forecast that the country will experience economic growth in 2017.
“This is another demonstration that the President Buhari APC-led administration is one that keeps its promises,” he added.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has stressed that, his administration has more work to do and would not rest until the impact of the exit from economic recession is felt by all Nigerians.
