As Nigerians celebrate the 63rd Independence anniversary of the country on Sunday October 1, 2023, the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, has assured of good governance under the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led administration.
In a goodwill message, signed by his Press Secretary, Edwin Olofu, Ganduje called on Nigerians not to despair as measures were already put in place by the APC-led administration to reposition the country to achieve growth and development.
The APC chairman called on Nigerians, irrespective of their ethnic and religious leanings to sustain the culture of peaceful coexistence to ensure the unity and cohesion of the country.
He restated that APC will remain true to its promises and pledges to the people, stressing that none of them will escape the party’s attention and won’t be treated lightly.
Ganduje said the present administration of President Tinubu was ready to live up to the Renewed Hope manifesto of the APC – to reposition Nigeria towards sustainable growth, development and economic prosperity.
“Today is indeed an auspicious day as it marks an epoch in the life of our dear nation. Sixty-three years ago, on this very day, our beloved country was granted independence to chart its destiny and build a new nation!
“Without a doubt, you will agree with me that the journey has not been without obstacles. It has been characterized by opportunities, prospects and challenges including a three-year civil war which has brought out the resilient Nigerian spirit of perseverance, industry and abiding faith in the country.
“Under this administration, Nigerians can rest assured that it will be fine again, that their worries will be made a thing of the past, that both the youth and age will be well secured.
“There will be sufficient jobs with decent wages, medicare, housing and other basic infrastructure that can guarantee the citizenry a better life.
“At this juncture, let me recognise and appreciate the immeasurable contributions, efforts, sacrifices and patriotism of our founding fathers, their vision, courage and perseverance laid the foundation for the emergence of this great and inspiring nation called Nigeria,” he added.
