APC National chairman appeals for more patience from Nigerians over the ‘change’ promised by the party.
He also urged Nigerians not to see change in terms of physical structures alone but total change of mindset.
National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has told Nigerians that the type of change the party promised them takes time to happen.
According to him, change is not only in physical development but a change in mindset.
Oyegun also claimed the party inherited a collapsed economy from the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP).
The APC national chairman made the assertions on Thursday at a reception where he received the Distinguished Political Leadership Award conferred on him by the Benin National Congress in Benin, Edo State.
“Change is not bridges. Change is not electricity. Change is not roads. Change is my perception as to what is right and what is wrong, what needs to be done and being faithful in getting it done.” The APC national chairman said.
“For as long as we, Nigerians, have the wrong type of morality, the wrong type of ethics, not all the roads in this world will get us out of the economic morass we have plunged ourselves into.
“Change takes time and consistency of application and the resolve not to go back to the bad old days”
“We took over a totally collapsed country. The hope is that things have started to solidify. Things have started to concretise; the economy has started to grow.

“It is not a switch; it is something that will take time. But once we are there, this nation will never experience the type of recession we had in the past,” he stated.
“Until Buhari, we were a laughing stock. Today, we are gaining respectability. So, it is important that we do not lose that momentum,” Odigie-Oyegun added
