President Buhari returned to the country after his trip to the UK.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said Nigeria’s exit from economic recession is a fulfilment of President Muhammadu Buhari ‘Next Level’ promises to Nigerians.

The APC interim National Secretary, John Udoedehe, in a statement on Thursday, said the growth gives credence to Mr Buhari-led administration promises to Nigerians.

“President Buhari promised Nigeria will exit the economic recession within a short time. That promise has been kept.

“Commendably, Nigeria’s exit from recession is the country’s first growth in three quarters amid the Coronavirus restrictions and consequent economic slowdown. It was not a fluke but as a result of well-planned measures lined up by the federal government to ensure a quick exit,” Mr Udoedehe said.

He cast doubt on the economic performance of past PDP-led governments and described its initiatives as a ”waste that has brought the country to its current struggle for economic survival”.

“Nigerians will agree that the past era of profligacy, voodoo economics and waste which brought our economy to its knees are fast fading. With continued support for the President Buhari government, the economy can only get better,” the party secretary said.
