BMSG urges Nigerians to keep hope alive, as IMF rates nation’s economy largest in Africa
As the International Monetary Fund rates Nigeria’s economy as the largest in Africa, the Buhari Media Support Group urges Nigerians to repose faith in the federal government and keep hope alive as President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration enunciates policies aimed at rejuvenating the nation’s economy.
In the current assessment published by the IMF, it was acknowledged that Nigeria’s GDP stands at about $415 Billion as against South Africa’s which is presently at about $280 Billion.
In a statement signed by the coordinator, Muhammad Labbo and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, the group considers the rating as an indication of Nigeria’s steady economic growth under President Buhari, based on his administration’s diversification policy.
The BMSG recalls that earlier in August when Nigeria slipped to second place behind South Africa, that the minister of Budget and Planning, Senator Udoma Udoma had assured that the Nigerian economy will be rebound in a short while.
The BMSG expresses confidence that President Buhari is leading Nigeria to the true path of economic recovery, as aptly testified by the Chinese Ambassador, Mr. Zhou Pingjian who revealed that many Chinese business people are “falling over themselves” in a bid to invest in Nigeria.
The group urges all Nigerians to repose faith in the Buhari administration and continue to lend their support towards the realization of the numerous economic and development policies already being put in place by the administration.
The BMSG notes that the policies on agriculture, solid minerals, oil and gas, job creation, security and overall revival of the economy have the potentials to rejuvenate the economy and prosper the nation.
From all indications, Nigeria will in the next few months begin to witness significant improvement in their wellbeing with the plans already drawn up to re-jig the economy by the President Buhari administration.
