A former Vice-President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday, said President Muhammadu Buhari alone could not turn around Nigeria’s fortunes.
He said this in his May Day message to Nigerian workers, contained in a statement by his Media Office.
Atiku said in view of the challenges that the country and its people were facing, it would take the support of everyone working in tandem with the Buhari administration to lift the economy out of the doldrums.
The former Vice-President noted that Buhari’s anti-corruption crusade, when combined with stopping waste and profligacy, would free the much-needed resources to jumpstart the economy by investing in infrastructure and high job-yielding sectors, especially agriculture as proposed by the government.
Atiku added, “President Buhari alone cannot turn around the fortunes of the country.
“It requires everyone – elected and appointed officials, the legislature and the judiciary, the public and private sectors and ordinary Nigerians – working together in faith and commitment to bring about the desired change.
“With dwindling revenue from oil, it has become imperative for us to bake a bigger cake that will be big enough for all partakers. To achieve this, we need to be more creative as a government and more productive as a people.
“We all need to make sacrifices in line with the realities of the time. It is not enough to ask workers to make sacrifices while public office holders are ostensibly immune to it. Such a situation promotes industrial disharmony.”
He reminded workers that the envisaged better deal for them was intrinsically tied to increased productivity.
