A national leader the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has told Nigerians that the pain of the current economic recession will soon give way for better days.
Tinubu, who gave the assurance in a New Year message issued from his media office, observed that the past year was full of great challenges and congratulated Nigerians for witnessing the beginning of the New Year 2017.
“The last year witnessed a lot of sacrifices on the path of Nigerians. The government of APC is mindful. It is the necessary pain before the gain. As we move into a new year the pains will ease off in certain areas as the policies and initiatives of the Buhari led the government to begin to yield needed relief and dividends.
“We have begun a journey and a path of sacrifice not of our choosing, but brought upon us all because of a few, chosen to lead, have led without vision, compunction or compassion.
“Now that we have a leadership that is committed, focused and people oriented we must align to make Nigeria work. We are a people blessed by God and destined to be great. The path to greatness is often not smooth. But, I am confident Nigeria will arrive and fulfil her destiny,” the former Lagos governor said.
The statement urged Nigerians to “pray and hope for a new county where feeding and shelter will not be a challenge and more of our people will find work to do”.
