Mr George Muoghalu, the National Auditor of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and member, Board of Trustees (BOT), has assured Nigerians that the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari was committed to fulfilling the party’s campaign promises.
Muoghalu said this on Monday in an interview with newsmen in Nnewi, Anambra State.
He said that the Federal Government had not abdicated its responsibility to deliver on its campaign promises.
He added that the government remained focused and determined to redeem the promises made during electioneering campaigns on security, corruption and the economy.
He explained that “the truth is that we met a bad situation; the country was ruined significantly, couple with a worldwide economic meltdown.
“Previous regimes who were forewarned about the situation made no effort about saving money or investing in infrastructure,” he said.
Muoghalu said that the Federal Government was making efforts to re-engineer the process of economic recovery and appealed for a little more patience.
He said government was putting palliatives in place to cushion the effects of the recession through investments in agriculture, provision of funds for graduates and recruitment of 500,000 teachers, among others.
“The Federal Government’s determination to put corruption and terrorism to a standstill is clearly seen by everyone.
“Before the president came into office, 14 local governments were totally under the control of insurgents, flying their flags, but as we speak, no inch of the Nigerian soil is being controlled by Boko Haram, though there are pockets of attacks by the insurgents.’’
The party chieftain reassured the people of the South East zone of more appointments by the President, as well as the execution of flagship projects, including the second Niger Bridge and federal roads.
