Eid el-Kabir: Economy Will Bounce Back – Buhari Assures Nigerians

President Muhammadu Buhari has saluted Nigerians for their steadfastness in spite of the difficult economic times confronting the country.

Buhari, in his Eid el-Kabir message to Nigerians released in Abuja on Sunday, gave the assurance that his administration would get the economy right.

According to him, the Federal Government is ‘working round the clock’ to address the current hardship the country is going through.

He attributed the economic recession to cumulative effects of worldwide economic downturn and failure in the past to plan and save for difficult times.

“It is impossible to separate the present from the past to appreciate the extent to which mistakes of the past are affecting everyday life today. I assure you that this administration is working round the clock to remove the hardships the country is going through,” he said.

He said development programmes had been designed to reinvigorate the economy and enhance living standards of ordinary people.

These, according to the President, include rail and road constructions, housing sector projects, support for farmers in small and medium scale industries, youth and women empowerment programmes and support for revival of industries.

“We are getting security right. We are stopping corruption in its tracks and we will get the economy right by the grace of God,” he said.

Buhari enjoined Muslims to live by the dictates of Islam by maintaining good relationships with their Christian brothers and sisters.

He further charged them to maintain the spirit of the Nigerian nation as patriots.

“The lessons of the Eid are piety and sacrifice and, my dear brothers and sisters, you have exhibited these in equal measure. I wish everyone happy holidays,” he added.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    Still blaming? Actifact Buhari still blaming? So you were not coming to think of how to drive a prosperous country? You must have tot that being a president in 2016 is just about signing cheques for Daura indigenes?
    Welcome to 2016! Look around the world and see who still blames his predecessor. Lazy govt! Obama must be sharing monies saved by George Bush.

    Adeosun’s economy will soon bounce back without a single plan?

    of course it will bounce back. Hopefully this pain will stick with Nigerians the next time your leaders don’t plan for your future.
