Buhari to fix Nigeria, says South Africa-based APC chieftain

15 June 2015, 07:53

Pretoria - An APC chieftain in South Africa, Chief Chuks Okoye, on Sunday said President Muhammadu Buhari has the potential to make Nigeria regain her lost glory.

Okoye, who is the Chairman of the National Elders Forum of the APC in South Africa, revealed in Pretoria, South Africa, that Buhari would bring significant change to move the country forward.

"This task cannot be achieved in one day. But with time, Nigerians will see the difference and style of leadership Buhari will bring to the country.

"It's unfortunate the past administration did not handle the nation’s economy well and this brought hardship to Nigerians.

"We are very optimistic that Buhari’s administration will fix the country and restore its lost glory," he said.

Okoye, however, urged Nigerians to support the new administration so that the country would return to the path of growth and development.

According to him, Nigeria is blessed with abundant resources waiting to be harnessed for development.

"President Buhari’s declaration that he belongs to everybody and belongs to nobody was significant and aimed at giving a sense of belonging to all Nigerians," he said.

Okoye said that APC members in South Africa would contribute to ensure the success of the new administration in the country.

"We will lend our expertise, time and energy to assist the country return to the good times.

"Nigeria needs a lot of support now to overcome some of her challenges," he said.
