All Progressives Congress, USA, International Secretariat has congratulated the newly appointed members of National Economic Council, saying the choice of its members is highly commended.
This was contained in a press statement made available to Nigerian Pilot, yesterday.
The constitution of the council under the leadership of Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, ‘‘signifies that it is 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,’’ the statement read in part.
It added that ‘‘APC USA would like to once again call on the government of President Muhammad 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 good will. 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.
