The All Progressives Congress, APC, Deputy National Chairman, South, Segun Oni, on Tuesday, urged Nigerians to be patient, saying the party was elected to do the impossible but it will do its best.
Addressing journalists at the party’s secretariat in Abuja, Oni argued that the economic difficulties currently being experienced by Nigerians would have been worse if the Peoples Democratic Party had returned to power.
Oni who noted that Nigerians had every right to expect magic from the ruling party, stressed that the reality on ground was that the party cannot make these challenges disappear.
According to him, “The economy was traumatised by a government whose only agenda was to win another round (of elections). Therefore, everything that they could put into trying to win a second round, even bastardising the economy, was done and we are all here.
“The reality on ground is that, if the previous government were (still) in power by now, Nigeria would have virtually packed up, maybe many of us would have become refugees by now.
“Yes, we are elected to do the impossible; we will do our best. I just want to plead that people should give us more realistic expectations.”
