APC government open for probe – Oyegun

Aanya Igomu, Abuja

The National Chairman of Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Oyegun, says President Muhammadu Buhari’s led government will be open for probe after his tenure.

Chief Oyegun stated this during a press briefing at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja.

While commenting on the allegation by the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that the fight against corruption was been targeted at PDP members alone, Mr. Oyegun said that the present administration is ready to account for all its deeds when it passes on the baton of leadership to another government.

“The damages done to the nation by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) government needed to be probed. People give this impression that this government does nothing order than probe corrupt officials, they said it was only PDP that this government is probing but for sixteen years, PDP  was in control.

 “We are investigating yesterday, let tomorrow investigate us, that is how this country will get out of this rots.

 “The mere fact that a current leader has the courage to probe what happened before his time is the clearest indication that he is most unlikely to repeat the same mistake because the next leader will investigate him too” Oyegun said.

Restructured Economy 

While speaking on the state of Nigeria’s economy, Mr. Oyegun said that while the government is fighting corruption it is also working on reconstructing the economy.

He assured Nigerians that they would notice a definite change in the country’s economy within the next few months.

“We cannot just start rebuilding a collapsed nation without clearing the debris, what we are doing today is clearing the debris at the same time the work of planning for the reconstruction of the Nigerian economy is rapidly in progress and I want to assure you that they will be plenty of good news in the next few months. I just want to underscore the fact that there is no automatic solution”.

He asked Nigerians to consider the fall in crude oil price and how it is affecting the economy and advised them to adjust to the current economic reality that has resulted from the situation.
