He said the report by the Nigeria Bureau of Statistics (NBS) saying the country is out of recession is an excellent development worth celebrating.

Speaking with NAN, Okechukwu said ”It shows that slow and steady; President Buhari is winning back the economy and putting the country on the path of optimal productivity once again.

”With this development, it is clear to all Nigerians that President Buhari is laying a solid economic foundation for the future of the country.”

The APC chieftain said that the present administration had done a lot in terms of agriculture, road construction as well as welfare of all Nigerians.

”The agriculture sector has been given its pride of place as the major economic stay, job creation mechanism, food security bedrock; and finally, good foreign exchange earner.

”You see individuals, corporate bodies and state governments going into agriculture in a modern and big way; thus, stimulating the local or micro economy.

”On roads, the number of roads done currently across all states and geographical zones is just alarming. Roads abandoned five or six years ago, when the nation had abundant resources to fix them,” he said.
