The All Progressives Congress (APC) Deputy Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank, has called on the National Assembly to work with President Buhari to solve the economic situation in the country.
Frank also urged the lawmakers to tell Buhari the truth, not minding if some of the President’seven if some ministers will lose their jobs..
He also commended the leadership of the Senate, as well as that of the House of Representatives for their effort in ensuring that Buhari succeeds.
According to him, Nigerians expect more from the APC at this point in time.
Frank said “Nigerians are anxiously waiting for the resumption of their representatives to the National Assembly so as to join President Muhammadu Buhari’s team in the struggle to bring succour to Nigerians.
“I want to commend the leadership of the Senate under Senator Bukola Saraki and the leadership of the House of Representative under Mr. Yakubu Dogara for their commitment at ensuring that the APC government succeeds.
“I must, at this point in time, tell the National Assembly leadership not to shy away from telling the executive the bitter truth even if it will cost some ministers and managers of our economy their jobs for the sake of Nigerians and the betterment of our economy.
“In the light of this, I want to support the promise made by the Senate President recently that, upon resumption, the National Assembly will make tough recommendations to Mr. President. Nigerians are waiting.
“Both the Senate and the House of Representatives should employ the services of experts on what to do urgently to take the nation out of recession before it gets to depression. May God forbid. Even our opposition lawmakers, at this point, should forget about their political affiliations and join hands with the country’s leadership for the sake of Nigeria.”
In August 2016, Timi Frank slammed the APC Chairman, John Oyegun for doing nothing to resolve the budget padding scandal rocking the House of Representatives.
