We are correcting the mistakes of the past – APC publicity secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi

The ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) have assured Nigerians of providing the ‘change’ they promised during the electioneering campaigns.

In an interview with the Publicity Secretary of the party, Bolaji Abdullahi as a guest on The Osasu Show, he stated that the current economic situation of the country was predicted during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

According to him, the President Muhammadu Buhari government has taken it upon itself to clear the mistakes of the past and put the nation back on positive track.

He stated that the President has succeeded in defeating the Boko Haram terrorists as promised during the campaigns and will create jobs through agriculture and solid minerals and holistically fight corruption.

He further said “Wherever a government tries to implement its own understanding to an existing problem there will be losers and gainers; there will immediate pains and immediate gains.”

While speaking on corruption, he said it is insanity for people to ‘steal’ billions from the coffers that they don’t necessarily need. He expressed his displeasure at the recent discovery of $9.2m found in the house of the former head of NNPC, Andrew Yakubu.

According to him, he was ‘ashamed’ to be part of the system where such grand theft among others took place.

He said: “I’m telling you that apart from the corruption of greed which almost borders on insanity when people take billions they don’t need. There are people who engage on systemic corruption who pilfer and distort financial records just because they want to be able to get by.

“I am not making excuses for anybody, but I strongly believe that if we are able to build an effective transport system that makes it also unnecessary for everybody to want to own a car. If live in the UK especially in London, you will know having a car is a burden. You build an efficient medical system that you don’t have to have cash to access medical care, and it is guaranteed your child can go through good public school without having to pay through your nose. You don’t need to buy generator just because you want electricity; I think systemic corruption would have been cut by 70 percent.

However, he assured Nigerians that all the government will bring smiles to their faces.
