A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Niger, Alhaji Muazu Bawa on Tuesday said Nigerians must support the measures put in place by the Federal Government to end recession and set Nigeria on the path of growth.
Bawa told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna that the measures would take time to mature, as such Nigerians must be patient and help the administration succeed in the endeavour.
He said that the government had invested heavily in revamping infrastructure, promoting agriculture and saving the national currency, so as to reposition the country for greatness.
Bawa particularly noted that the investment in agriculture was bearing fruits, as more Nigerians have ventured into agriculture and the government was providing inputs and financial support to boost production.
“In a very short time possible we will be out of recession, and there will be food security as more farmers harvest their produce which would be enough to feed the nation and export.”
He also noted that diversifying Nigeria’s economy from oil to areas like agriculture and mining would open up new economic activities that would generate employment and wealth.
“I have the strong conviction that the Buhari administration will revive our economy and tackle the nation’s current challenges,” Bawa said.
Bawa, a former Commissioner of Finance in Niger, therefore, urged Nigerians to set aside political, ethnic and religious differences and support the government in its efforts to redirect the country.
