Today, our country has the fastest growing economy in Africa & the world - Buhari

President Buhari says Nigeria presently has the fastest growing economy in Africa and the world. Buhari said this at the public presentation of a book, ‘Nigerian Century’ written by Dare Babarinsa at Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, yesterday February 18th.

His speech was read by former governor of Ekiti State and deputy chairman of All Progressives Congress in the South, Segun Oni who represented him at the occasion.


 "Yes, our land is blessed by providence with riches in oil and gas, iron ore, gold, limestone and almost all the minerals of this earth. Our soil can grow almost any crop and our vegetation supports animal life as varied as creation can manifest. Our rivers and coast lines are rich with fishes and various kinds of life. Yet, despite these bounties from nature, I have no doubt that the greatest blessings of Nigeria are the people of Nigeria, the wonderful people that give expression to the grandeur and majesty of our beloved country. Today, our country has the fastest growing economy in Africa and one of the fastest in the world. Our dominance is not so much because of our wealth, but because of the tremendous energy and resourcefulness of our people. How many countries of the world can parade the likes of Professor Wole Soyinka, Jay Jay Okocha, King Sunny Ade and Alhaji Aliko Dangote literally under the same roof?”he said

When will Nigerians open their eyes for once and see things for the way they are and not always waiting for some fools to tell us what is not. Buhari and his Apc had no plan for this country from the onset, they just wanted to rule by all means, now look where that has got us. Obj and tinubu, despite all they did in the past, where the politicians i used to look up to. They have both lost all the respect i had for them.

In times like this I begin to wonder if we truly live in the same country with the president. Well, this can't be linked With the recurring image of a lanky, bespectacled man standing at the door of the presidential aircraft, waving and waving an umpteenth good bye, Buhari has literally compelled the discerning to cotton up to the fact that he would rather go elsewhere than fulfil the sedentary lion-share of his job!. How in the world can Nigeria's economy be the fastest growing economy in Africa with a parallel exchange rate volatility of N391 to $1. I sincerely seem not to understand Mr president.

That's the Nigerian politics that I have always known.

We are far better at window dressing than we are at tackling serious national issues.

Our economy may have taken a few baby steps forward - if any - in the past few months, but the President should quit talking it up as if it's changed the life of the average Nigerian.

More work is still needed and publicity stunts are least effective.

Common south south pig that didn't know he left from his right and allowed him and his people do what they are known for...stealing!!!!! And then we revert back to Buhari. How are we supposed to have any sort of success or progress as a nation if we cannot change the rules that keep forcing these fossilized relics of a dead era upon us.

Dr True said...

Everything contained in Dr Segun Oni's speech on behalf of Buhari is true. I agree that the economy is struggling at the moment but this is the storm before the calm. We have to endure this pain of the present to derive the bliss of the future. Nigeria was at the brink of destruction and we are fortuitous to have an incorruptible President like Buhari, who is utterly committed to fixing the mess.

Using his representative to lie in order to play safe.....smh #wakawakaBuhari

Why you always lying?

You make the headline claim Buhari made the speech and that he claimed Nigeria is the fastest growing economy in the world hoping or infact knowing that the majority of people wont read the full article. Even in the article, you claim the speech was written by Buhari.

Madam, you're growing radical. Keep it up. You'd find yourself drowning in lawsuits soon enough.
