The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has said the current economic situation was not the making of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
The former Lagos State Governor, in his Eid-el-kabir message, noted that the current economic challenge was a phase that will come and pass.
Speaking through his Media Office, Tinubu said the “present circumstance” wasn’t pushed on the populace by the ruling party.
Urging Nigerian to join the government in building a new, vibrant economy, Tinubu said, “During this Season of Eid-el-Kabir, I wish to felicitate with the Muslim brotherhood. We must give thanks to almighty Allah for keeping us alive to celebrate this Eid.
“This spirit of sacrifice and unselfish giving that defines this celebration must guide us all in the way we relate to others and in our quest for a better society. Through sacrifice and a heart and hand of charity we can lift up many who will in turn become better tools for the socio-economic rejenevation we so desire.
“We must see our current economic situation as a passing phase. We shall overcome. Our faith summons us to have faith but also to work so that things can get better.
“This economic predicament is not of our making or choosing. It came not by invitation. The economic downturn represents a tough challenge not lightly overcome. No one wished that such an impediment would confront us. Now, we must rise to the occasion. Our economic situation presents an opportunity for us to do something we have avoided too long.
“Nigerians deserve a better country, more empowerment, job opportunities and an overall strong economy. The current government is committed to achieving this.”
