APGA lauds Buhari on mission statement

The All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) has lauded the president-elect, retired General Muhammadu Buhari on his mission statement, reports ITRealms.

APGA in a press statement made available to ITRealms and endorsed by its national publicity secretary, Mr Okwukwe Ibiam alluded to General Buhari’s address to the induction of new legislators of the 8th National Assembly, in Abuja, Wednesday.

“We are particularly intrigued and elated that the President-elect adopted APGA themes in his address, and commend the President-elect's proposition to work with the Nigerian Legislature to increase domicile security across Nigeria; halt the scourge of de-industrialization for the last 3 decades, resulting in migration of skilled labour to other countries; focus on Nigerian Economic base re-structuring, including decreased dependence on oil export revenue; increase Power supply and its general effect on development of small-scale industries around the federation; eradicate devastation and environmental degradation of the Niger Delta; and end endemic corruption,” APGA said.

The party also welcomed specifically the in-coming administrations' goals, which APGA said its particularly touched that the President harped on the scourge of de-industrialization for the past 3 decades, and the migration of unemployed skilled labour to other African countries.

Just as they reminded Buhari it was his unilateral policy in the 80’s that ended for instance, the issue of Government policy and De-Industrialization. “Osisioma, a Nigerian industrial outpost of Aba City, Abia State, is one such de-industrialized location, suffering heavily secondary to a Buhari unilateral policy in the eighties about 3 decades ago

According to APGA spokesman, the abandoned factories and steel frame ruins with reeds from overgrown bushes hanging over them, still lie evident for any to see, especially along the Osisioma Aba - Port Harcourt expressway. 

“Hopefully, this gradually re-surging town, Osisioma will look to benefit from the proposed re-industrialization policies of a Buhari Government. A policy favorable to the local entrepreneurs, who are the architects of the private economic growth in this region of Nigeria,” he said.
