The Buhari Media Support Group, a pressure organisation, has called on Nigerians to keep faith with President Muhammadu Buhari administration`s policies aimed at rejuvenating the nation’s economy.
The group made the call in a statement signed by Mr Muhammad Labo and Mr Cassidy Madueke, Coordinator and Secretary, respectively, on Thursday in Abuja.
The group, which was reacting to the recent rating of the Nigerian economy as the largest in Africa by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), said that the economy would be revamped.
“In the current assessment published by the IMF, it was acknowledged that Nigeria’s GDP stands at about 415 billion dollars as against South Africa’s which is presently at about $280 billion.’’
It said that the rating was an indication of Nigeria’s steady economic growth under Buhari, based on his administration’s diversification policy.
It expressed confidence that the president was leading Nigeria on the path of economic recovery.
According to it, this was testified to by the Chinese Ambassador, Mr Zhou Pingjian, who revealed that Chinese investors were struggling to invest in Nigeria.
“We urge Nigerians to continue to lend their support towards the realisation of the numerous economic and development policies already put in place by the Buhari administration.
“The policies on agriculture, solid minerals, oil and gas, job creation, security and overall revival of the economy had potentials to rejuvenate the economy and prosper the nation,’’ it said.
The group expressed optimism that Nigerians would soon witness significant improvement in their wellbeing with ongoing efforts to re-jig the economy.
