President Muhammadu Buhari has charged Nigerians to discard the wide spread insinuations that his administration and party the All Progressives Congress (APC) have deceived them and cannot bring about the change they so much desire.
Buhari who stated this at the 2015 Vanguard Newspapers Awards held Friday night in Lagos, where he was honoured with the Personality of the Year Award 2015, said he is keenly aware of the difficulties that Nigerians are facing at this time, resulting mostly from the fuel scarcity, poor power supply, inflation, among others.
He said ,’’As a government that was propelled into office by the power of the people, we cannot but feel the pains of our compatriots, and we deeply empathise with them. We are working round the clock to ease the pains of Nigerians, and the efforts of the government have started yielding fruits as we seek to make the petroleum products available nationwide, restore gas supply to the power generating firms, reflate the economy and put Nigerians back to work.’’
The President who was represented by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said he understands that Nigerians have started questioning whether this indeed is the change they voted for, while some have even gone as far as saying that by voting for the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigerians have entered ‘’One Chance’’.
‘’Well, I can tell Nigerians that our Change Agenda is real, and that indeed, they will get the change they voted for. Nigerians have not entered ‘One Chance’, because the ‘One Chance’ drivers and their conductors have been driven out of town.”
