Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday, December 26, acknowledged that there is so much hardship in Nigeria at the moment.
This was disclosed by Bolaji Abdullahi, the spokesperson of the ruling party, in an interview with journalists in Ilorin, Kwara state capital.
According to Abdullahi, things are currently difficult in the country, but that doesn’t mean that President Muhammadu Buhari had economically failed the nation.
The APC spokesman said that Buhari is doing his best to address the national challenges.

He said: “It will be unfair to say the APC government has failed on the economic front, when we have a four-year tenure. If you plant a mango tree that has four years gestation period, the fact that it is just germinating does not mean your crop has failed.
“There is so much hardship in the country at the moment and we are the first to acknowledge that. But what gives us courage and comfort is that the federal government of Nigeria, under the leadership of President Buhari, is working round the clock to solve this problem and bring succour to Nigerians.
That is why the 2017 budget has been tagged ‘Budget of Recovery.’
