Mai-MalaNational Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Alhaji Maimala Buni, has said the support Nigerians are giving President Muhammadu Buhari in his quest for a realistic budget reflect the people’s faith in the administration.
Buni, who spoke in Damaturu, the Yobe State capital on Sunday, said Nigerians understood the desire of government to have a workable document, which implementation would improve their lives.
“It is evident that there is trust in government now and, Nigeria’s image has greatly improved before the international community, with an increased interest by foreign investors to invest in the country.
“Every country is looking forward to doing business with Nigeria because we now have a President, who is transparent, committed, incorruptible and trusted by Nigerians and the international community”, he said in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
The party scribe said Nigerians’ belief in the APC government was further demonstrated by the large turnout of voters in the Saturday by-election in Yobe, which was won by the APC’s Abdullahi Kukuwa.
Buni noted that “The large turnout in yesterday’s election and APC’s victory at the polls has consolidated the people’s faith in the party and President Buhari to improve their lives.
“In spite of the hardships suffered by the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), they came out massively to elect APC because of their strong faith in the party and the leadership”.
He also hailed the president for supporting the security forces in the fight against insurgency.
Mr. Buni added that the security situation in the Northeast had improved significantly.

Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice-President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has expressed that the Federal Government should reconsider the 2021 budget owing to the recession.

Nigeria officially entered into its worst economic recession in 33 years after the nation recorded a GDP contraction of 3.62 percent in the third quarter of 2020.

He stated that Nigeria is broke and cannot afford the luxurious items in the N13.08 trillion budget proposal.

Atiku in a Twitter thread on Sunday stated that COVID-19 only complicated an existing economic problem.

Atiu went on to express that had President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration listened to advice, the recession could have been avoided.

“We could have avoided this fate by a disciplined and prudent management of our economy.”

“This could have been avoided had this administration taken heed to the patriotic counsel given by myself and other well-meaning Nigerians on cutting the cost of governance, saving for a rainy day, and avoiding profligate borrowing,” Atiku said.

He further said that now is not the time to trade blames but to focus on ways to manage the situation and called on Buhari’s government to “swallow its pride, and accept its limitations, so that they can open their minds to ideas, without caring who the messenger is.”
