President Muhammadu Buhari has been commended for the quality of cabinet members he has appointed to drive the change agenda of the Federal Government.
John Odigie-Oyegun, the National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), gave the commendation on Wednesday in Abuja when he received the FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello, who paid him a courtesy visit.
He said that the calibre of appointees like the FCT Minister would move the Federal Capital Territory to enviable heights considering his pedigree.
“The economy of the country was plunged into a sorry state by the previous governments.
“This is in addition to the down turn of oil price, which has remained the nation’s major source of revenue thereby making things very difficult,’’ he said.
Mr. Oyegun said that if previous governments had diversified the country’s economy all these years, the situation would have been better today.
He commended the FCT Minister for the visit, and assured that the APC would work closely with the FCT Minister and the FCT administration to take Abuja to the next level.
On the forthcoming FCT Area Councils’ election, the National Chairman promised to support the FCT Chapter of the APC to deliver the Councils to the party.
He stressed the need for teamwork among party faithful to ensure that the APC emerge victorious in the elections.
Speaking earlier, the FCT Minister promised to work closely with the party in his efforts to deliver the desired change agenda of the Federal Government.
While reminding the chairman of the Area Councils’ elections slated for March 19, Mr. Bello solicited the support of the party’s headquarters to enable the FCT chapter win the polls.
“We are here to pay homage as loyal party men and to tap from the wisdom of its leadership which transcend several decades,” he said.
