The All Progressives Congress, APC, Lagos State chapter, at the weekend, gave a message of hope to Nigerians, saying in 2016, they will have cause to rejoice over the “right political choice they made in 2015”.
The party also said despite the gloomy economic picture painted for the year, they will be reached by the change programmes of the APC.
In a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Joe Igbokwe, the Lagos APC assured that the party freely voted into power by millions of Nigerians was prepared to tackle the nation’s economic woes in the New Year.
According to Igbokwe, the party has launched a rescue mission with the introduction of unprecedented economic recovery policies, despite the farcical wreckage the government inherited and the tumbling crude oil prices at the international market.
The statement reads: “By the end of 2016, Nigerians will have cause to applaud the right political choice they made in 2015 as the country painstakingly saved from imminent collapse by the coming of the APC government.
“We wish the good people of Lagos a prosperous and more fulfilling new year, as we look eagerly to more fruitful governance in Lagos as the present government in the state continues the rapid development of the state despite hitting economic realities.
“We want to assure Lagosians that the state will get better as the APC government adds immensely to the rich culture of good and accountable, result-oriented governance Lagosians have immensely benefitted from since 1998.
“We want to reassure the people that the state will continue to witness tremendous growth and progress as it positions to drive Nigeria’s recovery from the past of corrupt dependence on oil.
“We want to assure Lagosians that the state will witness massive infrastructural development, huge job creation, great boosts in security and enormous investments as the present state government continues to aggressively pursue the goals of a huge mega-city where millions of Nigerians continue to fall back for succor following the global economic downturn and the immoral mismanagement of the country by the past PDP federal government”.
