We never knew Nigeria's economy was this bad- APC National chairman, Oyegun says

APC National chairman John Odigie-Oyegun yesterday said during the election campaigns in 2015, their party knew that things in Nigeria were bad but never knew how bad it was. Oyegun said this while speaking at a surprise birthday party held for him by staff of the APC national secretariat in Abuja yesterday August 12th.
“It has been tough times for the nation. When we were campaigning and it is necessary to continue to hammer on this part, we were not in government.
We knew things were very bad, but we did not know they were as bad as we eventually found them and the revelations that come out everyday continue to buttress that fact. Nobody ever expected the price of crude to collapse in the way it has done and one can only repeat what Mr. President said a few days ago.
That is for being a nation that had an excess crude account, today because of the collapse of the price of crude, a lot of states of this country do not have enough resources to meet their basic functions, responsibilities. That we would never again depend on a single crop whether it is oil, whether it is solid minerals, whether it is agriculture.
The president is laying a single foundation, very solid foundation, for the take-off of this nation such that all the resources that God has endowed this nation with, whether it is in solid minerals that it is plentiful, whether it is in agriculture, we can grow virtually anything in this nation of ours we have been blessed with rich soil.
The Nigeria of tomorrow would be a Nigeria that produces, the Nigeria of tomorrow would be a Nigeria that can give employment to its youth. The Nigeria of the tomorrow would be a nation that would provide plentiful opportunities for its people that is the Nigeria Buhari is presently constructing.”he said

The past administration must be mentioned whether wailers like it or not,they damage the country beyond imagination but I trust PMB to construct the country for good that I'm certain! It's easy to destroy but very hard to repair, most especially corrupt nation, we must go true pains as the repair is in progress. PMB is the best president Nigerians can hope for.

Pls shut the hell up you fool!. The economy was damaged beyond imagination and that's why Nigeria was hailed as the fastest growing economy in Africa. With a GDP of more than 6% as of 2015 before the elections.We youth really have to have love for country and forcefully take control of the country. The world has left us behind and we are still talking rubbish every day.

Is that why billions that you people claim we do not have is going into search for oil that is dwindling instead diversification?

Mr chair, sir, we all have ways of consoling ourselves just to either deny, or justify our failures and shortcomings. Perhaps, I should teach you a very common sense that, nobody has ever, neither will judge him/herself and condemned self. That is, nobody will see himself or herself as being wicked or evil. I've always posed a question to people, have you ever seen the father of an armed robber before? I mean a man introducing himself as the father of the armed robber caught or killed yesterday? Same way we do not expect you to accept the errors, mistakes and failures of this Association of Past Criminals (APC),of which you're the chairman. However, even if your party wakes up to the reality now to accept their failure, and apologize to Nigerians, it's already late for you, because, such can only be an antics for votes for 2019, and that time unu ga agba Nigerians òsé

The economy is collapsing under your president because of his eveilness.The same happened the last time he was there. But all your hate for the Niger Deltan blinded you all.

Since he entered, it has been auto reverse in almost all the sectors.

This is to show the whole nation and the whole world that the false prophets like MBAKA that said the almajiri was our messiah are fantastically lying bunch of men that don't hear anything from our Jehovah!

Shame on you all.

APC, All Promises Cancelled, so you people didn't know the situation of country, and more than one year after Buhari and his ministers are still yet to get their bearing. Isn't that pathetic. How many years will it take this scam change government to find solution to all the difficulty they have put Nigerians into. Please if Buhari doesn't know what to do to ease the starvation and frustration in the land, he should resign already. We are tired of excuses from all you clueless and visionless APC gang

With all due respect Sir, just short up stop whining and work. Even economic idiots knew the true state of the economy except of course you were one of those carried away with all those dodged documentation and false statements by Nkojo uwella.... some of us were expecting you put up a good team like even Manchester United is doing but we are grossly disappointed in the team you are parading. We still have some confidence in you considering the fact that APC has just started. But we are not really too impressed. Give us really change and bring the right people on board

In Abuja on Saturday, 10th December 2014 President Goodluck Jonathan said.the following: The choice before Nigerians in the coming elections is simple: A choice between going forward or going backwards, between the old ways and the new ways; between freedom and repression (Tyranny); between a record of visible achievements and beneficial reforms and desperate power-seekers with empty promises.

The Buharists and the “lying liars” are blinded by their hate for Jonathan. It is so bad that if their wives were made pregnant by another man they would say that it was Jonathan that was responsible. Yet their record of governance is clear and there for all to see.

As a candidate, Buhari appeared to recognize that revamping the economy had to be a priority. He made it a go-to talking point. He hammered on it at the hustings, always checking it off with the promise to fight corruption and arrest insecurity.

But in his earliest days in office, the economy was the last thing on his mind. The leisure of globe trotting was first. And he started to work his planes as soon as possible.

When Nigerians, alarmed that the intoxication of power may have made Buhari frivolous, asked him to sit down and work, he plagiarized Obasanjo: My world tour is a necessary charm offensive. Nigeria is a pariah state. I am traveling to reconcile Nigeria with the world

While he lived in the air, Buhari left Nigeria without direction and without a cabinet. He took six months purporting to look for the beautiful ones. Even in a fiction, that’s too long a period to run an amorphous government after a disruptive election that saw an opposition candidate win.

Naturally, that eternity of vacuum was filled with speculations and rumors. The market place was paralyzed. Investors and businessmen got edgy, confused and afraid. Because they were made to hedge their bets and wait forever for the new administration enunciate its economic policy, some took their capital elsewhere. The financial system reacted. And an epidemic of job losses began.

After one year and few months of this administration inefficiency and misconduct instead of Buhari and APC to accept their failure they are busy lying to Nigerians and think that by putting blames on Goodluck Jonathan regime and PDP will cover up the facts on ground for the interest of their party.

Let us call a spade a spade Nigerians because Bubari and APC are killing this nation with their clueless and visionless then taking us for granted.

Don't mind them. They didn't know it was bad. That's why buhari brought his ministers after 6 months? And you went for a meeting instead of going to the Senate to elect a senate president ? You removed subsidy that you criticised during last administration. And your legislators are padding budget

Haba aboki let's be factual. It wasn't long ago that pdp left.left.things were better.jonathan was there for 6 years and this kind of hardship wasn't there. Dollar was N160 fuel was N87 and we knew price of food stuffs.yes things were bad. But now they are worse .you can't blame the past govt for this.when they were there they held on perfectly.
