All Progressives Congress, APC, has charged the party’s House of Representatives members-elect that the work ahead of them would not be easy.
National chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun dropped the hint at a two-day retreat for all APC members-elect of the House of Representatives in Abuja.
“While I congratulate all of you on your elections, I must caution that your task is not easy. This is because you are being called to service at one of the most challenging periods in the history of our nation. You must dig deep into your inner reserves of wisdom, unshakeable faith in country and a fearless commitment to service of fatherland in order to surmount the daunting legislative challenge that will swiftly face you in the days and weeks to come.
“You may be required to pass important bills at very short notices. There will be unprecedented demands on you, but as members of the same party with the President and having campaigned on a common manifesto, your buy-in to the programmes of the President and the Party is assumed.”
He therefore maintained that there is need for them to work with the president and the party for the benefit of all Nigerians.
Chief Oyegun, however, said that this is not intended to scare them but rather to frame the magnitude of the challenge that they would confront.
This is because, according to him, to reposition the country for growth and development is not going to be that easy.
The party chairman assured Nigerians that a day after the swearing in of the president-elect, all fuel queues would disappear, corruption would fade away, all arrears of salaries paid and all the roads paved, while electricity would become stable, adding that tackling the economic problems in the country was the more important task ahead of the incoming administration.
