‘I’m surprised that Nigerians are not clapping for President Buhari’ – Chris Ngige

Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment stated Nigeria would have been in ruins if President Buhari was not elected to pilot the affairs of the nation in 2015.  

Ngige who spoke with journalists in Onitsha, Anambra State on Sunday stated the All Progressives Congress met the nation in tatters when it took over from the Peoples Democratic Celebration about three years in the past.

He expressed surprised that Nigerians had been not “clapping” for Buhari for reviving the economic system of the nation from what he known as a state of comatose.

Ngige stated “Don’t simply speak about that. We are great with the economic system; no one, I imply no individual would have performed higher than this current authorities in these two areas. I would like you to take one thing away and that factor is that some other individual dealing with this case; economic system, safety, it will have been worse.

We got here in and oil nosedived to 37 {dollars} a barrel with a manufacturing of 600,000 per day, a drop from 2.2 million and but we managed the economic system out of recession. Nigerians ought to be clapping for us on each day foundation, and after thanking God, they need to thank us. Sure, as a result of God has used Buhari and a few of us to make Nigeria work”.

The Minister stated the Buhari authorities had created over eight million jobs by means of agriculture and allied industries, stressing that earlier governments had relied on oil cash and didn’t diversify the economic system.  

He added, “we’ve inspired folks and stated there’s dignity in labour with the hand. Immediately, we are second to America in world manufacturing of sorghum; right now, we are importing about 4 per cent of the rice wants of the nation. Previous to that, this nation was spending $5m each day on rice and about $1.8b yearly on rice importation. And also you don’t wish to clap for us!

He described these complaining towards the Buhari authorities as ”loafers wanting for appointments and air-conditioned jobs.”
