Ndoma-Egba foresees a brighter future
Former Senate Leader and Chairman-designate of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba (SAN), has expressed hope for a brighter future as the country celebrates its 56th independence anniversary.
Ndoma-Egba, in a press release made available to The Guardian, said in spite of the challenges Nigeria is facing, especially economic and security challenges, the All Progressives Congress-led (APC) federal government has demonstrated the will to tackle them.
“We must accept that our economy has had structural challenges for a long time and the consequences of our missteps and failure to diversify the economy and save for future have only recently become evident.
“The good news, however, is that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government is striving to arrest the decay in our national economy through the restructuring of government’s budgetary and expenditure procedures, economic diversification and strengthening of our institutions.”
He noted that Nigeria is at the threshold of a new dawn, where Nigerians would have honest reward for their industry and talent and corruption would be minimised and no longer be a hindrance to our collective economic productivity.
This, he stated, requires patience and understanding as we go through this difficult, but unavoidable path to sustainable recovery, adding: “We should continue to have faith in our democracy, in the government and country.”
