Face Your Appointment with great passion, APC-USA Urges Party Constituted NEC reports that the All Progressives Congress (APC-USA), has charged the newly inaugurated National Economic Council to approach their assignment with deep passion in order to lift Nigeria out of its myriad economic challenges.

Speaking through a statement they sent to, which was signed by Francis John, the International Coordinator, APC-USA secretariat, the association expressed hope that the council under the leadership of the Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo, would think out measures of repositioning the country’s economy.

It read in part: “the constitution of the council signifies that it's not business as usual and President Muhammadu Buhari has started work in earnest, thus diffusing the perception of slow pace of work since assumption of office in May.

“To the members of National Economic Council, we say that the purpose and your call to duty is timely and recommend honesty and transparency in all your dealings! We trust that your team will further leave no stone unturned in helping deliver Nigeria from local and international accumulated financial shame and disgrace. Be aware that Nigerians and the international community are looking forward to significant improvement in Nigeria's financial systems, economic development and business relationships. Please discard selfishness, pride, in the entire process, rather use collective-divergent knowledge, skills and abilities accordingly”.  

While outlining sensitive areas demanding the attention of the Council members, John said, “Once again honesty and transparency must be observed at all times.

“APC USA wish to reiterate it’s confidence in this administration, irrespective of trivial issues that have brought about recent schisms within the party. We are confident that these issues will be resolved to the benefit of the party and Nigerian nation shortly.

“In conclusion, APC USA would like to once again call on the government of President Muhammadu Buhari to please consider including Nigerians in Diaspora particularly technocrats who have demonstrated extraordinary expertise, in the management of Ministries, Departments and Agencies and when necessary in helping to resolve intra-party conflicts. One such Diasporan Nigerian, Prof Isa Odidi in his speech endorsing Mr. President at Eagle Square tasked Nigerians to ‘Take Back their Country’, a clarion call among many others from the Diaspora that came to epitomize the thinking of all Nigerians of goodwill.

“Nigerians in Diaspora did not sit on the sidelines in the fight for President Buhari and APC victory and as such do not want to sit on the side lines in the governance of the country. Consequently we again call on President Muhammad Buhari and APC to engage Nigerians in Diaspora in the quest to ‘take our country back’ that His Excellency has just began”.
