Oyegun on Friday, 12th August stated that during the election campaigns in 2015, their party was aware of the economic situation in the country but never knew how bad it was...
He said this during his discussion at a surprise birthday party held for him by staff of the APC national secretariat in Abuja yesterday August 12th.
“It has been tough times for the nation. When we were campaigning and it is necessary to continue to
hammer on this part, we were
not in government. We knew things were very bad, but we did not know they were as bad as we
eventually found them and the revelations that come out everyday continue to buttress that fact.
Nobody ever expected the price of crude to collapse in the way it has
done and one can only repeat what Mr. President said a few days ago.
That is for being a nation that had an excess crude account, today because of the collapse of the price of crude, a lot of states of this country do not have enough resources to meet their basic functions, responsibilities.
That we would never again depend
on a single crop whether it is
oil, whether it is solid minerals, whether it is agriculture.
The president is laying a single foundation, very solid foundation, for the take-off of this nation such that all the resources that God has
endowed this nation with, whether it is in solid minerals that it is plentiful, whether it is in agriculture, we can grow virtually anything in this nation of ours we have been
blessed with rich soil.
The Nigeria of tomorrow would be a Nigeria that produces, the Nigeria of tomorrow would be a Nigeria
that can give employment to its youth. The Nigeria of the tomorrow would be a nation that would provide plentiful opportunities for its people that is the Nigeria Buhari is presently constructing.”
