President Muhammadu Buhari, has once again reassured Nigerians that it will not be long before they begin to feel the positive impact of his policies in their lives. The President, represented by his political adviser, Senator Femi Ojudu, made the call for patience on Thursday, August 18, 2016, when he spoke at the South West conference of the All Progressives Congress, APC, at Ibadan.
Speaking on behalf of the president, Senator Femi Ojudu said:
“You all may well know, the darkest part of the night is the period before dawn. Nigeria’s dawn is about to break. We are determined to turn things around. Change is not easy, but we are not relenting until we achieve a better life for all Nigerians.
“The change we advocate will be irrevocable when we are finally done. We just have to change from our old ways of doing things because things cannot be allowed to continue the way they were.
“Though, things may appear difficult at the moment, it will not be long before Nigerians start deriving the full benefits of the current policies of government which are designed to re-position the country and improve on the prevailing economic situation.”
Ojudu further said that “Already, there are signs that things are turning round for the better. In the oil and gas industries for instance, many investors are showing tremendous interest in building petroleum refineries. In no distant time, the issues of fuel scarcity will become a thing of the past.”
Supporting the president, the APC national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun charged members of the party to make the public understand that effecting change in the polity would take time, noting that noted that the mess made by Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 16 years cannot be reversed in 15 just months.
