The Presidency has attributed Nigeria’s exit from economic recession to the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is working for the progress and prosperity of all Nigerians.
Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), Femi Adesina made the declaration on Tuesday in Abuja while addressing a solidarity rally for the Federal Government organized by the Centre for Civil Society and Justice.
Adesina told the rally near the Presidential Villa, “You have chosen a very auspicious day for this solidarity rally. Earlier today, we were told that Nigeria had officially exited recession.
“That shows that we have a government that is working for us. We have a government that is interested in our welfare. We have a government that is interested in our well-being.
“Recession came due to some mistakes of the past and in just about a year, the government battled it and today we are officially out of recession and we give all glory to God.’’
Assuring the rally that he would relay their message of support and solidarity on the unity of Nigeria to Buhari, Adesina said, “You know the President swore to uphold the Constitution and the Constitution recognizes Nigeria as one indissoluble entity.
“The President has sworn to keep the unity of the country and whatever it takes; he will keep to that pledge,’’ he said.
While urging those ‘‘beating the drums of separation’’ to keep their peace” the spokesman noted that the present government is resolute to preserve the unity, cohesion and togetherness of Nigeria.
Earlier in his remarks, the convener of the rally, Comrade Goodluck Obi said the group wholeheartedly supports President Buhari’s uncommon resolve to fix a nation “plundered and pillaged by irresponsible leadership in the past at various levels of government.’’
Obi called on the National Assembly and the Judiciary to support the executive arm of government in the war against corruption, insurgency and economy recovery programmes.
He said, “We want to sound a note of warning to both organs of government, that we the Nigerian people would no longer allow our collective destiny to be toyed with like a game.
“We are more than ever ready to mobilize the people to do the needful within the ambit of the law. Enough is enough.”
