The National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the quality of cabinet members he has appointed to drive his 'change' agenda, noting that the country would not have been the current economic mess if the previous governments did the right thing.

He said that the calibre of appointees like the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello, would move the Federal Capital Territory to enviable heights considering his pedigree.

He stated this on Wednesday, February 24, in Abuja when he received the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello who paid him a courtesy visit.

"The economy of the country was plunged into a sorry state by the previous governments.

"This is in addition to the down turn of oil price, which has remained the nation’s major source of revenue thereby making things very difficult,’’ he said.

Oyegun pointed out that if previous governments had diversified the country’s economy all these years, the situation would have been better today.

He commended the FCT Minister for the visit, saying it is necessary for the party to rub minds with all stakeholders.

He assured that the APC will work closely with the FCT Minister and the FCT administration to take Abuja to the next level.

On the forthcoming FCT Area Councils’ election, the National Chairman promised to support the FCT Chapter of the APC to deliver the Councils to the party.

He stressed the need for teamwork among party faithful to ensure that the APC emerge victorious in the elections.

Speaking earlier, the FCT Minister promised to work closely with the party in his efforts to deliver the desired Change Agenda of the Federal Government.

While reminding the chairman of the Area Councils’ elections slated for March 19, Bello solicited the support of the party’s headquarters to enable the FCT chapter win the polls.
