    Nigeria’s challenges are signs of greatness – Rep

    A member of the House of Representatives, Ibrahim Almustapha, has said that Nigeria’s current challenges are signs of greatness, saying the country has the capacity to surmount them.

    Almustapha, a member of the All Progressives Congress, who represents Wurno/Rabah Federal Constituency of Sokoto State at the National Assembly, said this when he spoke with newsmen on Sunday.

    He said, “To me, I see most of these challenges, especially the security challenge facing the country, as a sign of greatness, many great nations passed through lots of challenges on their way to greatness.

    “I believe the same situation applies to Nigeria and once we are able to overcome them, Nigeria will certainly become great in every aspect of human endeavours, in terms of economy, infrastructure, power, and all others.

    “What we need is to come together as a nation with sincerity, towards tackling the challenges, Nigerians who are fond of celebrating bad news and negativity should stop.

    “Those supplying information and logistics to bandits and armed robbers should stop and those entrusted with the task of fighting them should be more sincere.”

    Almustapha said that, although, Nigeria had recorded some achievements in the fight against Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East, much needed to be done.

    “I think the North-East has witnessed relative peace for some time now, certainly, the situation is not the way it was in 2015 when the APC came into power,” he said.

    He expressed optimism that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)-led Federal Government, would succeed in its bid to tackle the security challenges bedeviling the country.

    Almustapha said that the new leadership of the APC would reposition the party ahead of the 2023 general election.

    “When you talk about discipline, determination, and uprightness, I think you are talking about the new APC executives led by Senator Abdullahi Adamu,” he said.

    Almustapha said the APC would win the 2023 general elections without much challenge.

    “Nigerians love APC, they love Buhari, and I’m sure you must have seen the tremendous progress made in terms of infrastructure since the regime came in 2015.

    “If I should ask you which other political party exists in the country with that kind of credential certainly, you will reply that there’s non.

    “In terms of development, no party can match the APC, even with the numerous economic, social, security, and even COVID-19 challenges, the APC administration has done well.

    “Just take a look around Nigeria, you will see massive infrastructure development everywhere, there is also massive agricultural intervention everywhere,” he said.

    Almustapha added, “I think the APC has performed very well, especially when compared with the Peoples Democratic Party’s years.

    “I can comfortably tell you that the APC will win the 2023 general election with a landslide victory.”

    He expressed optimism that the party would remain united ahead of the general election.

    “Are you not surprised that we conducted our National Convention successfully despite all odds.

    “We had about eight chairmanship aspirants and all of them came together and agreed to step down for Adamu, the same scenario would repeat itself during the primary election and it will be hitch-free.

    “We in the APC are out for the goodness of Nigeria, we are not out to pursue an individual interest, ours is the collective interest of Nigeria, we have to agree and disagree on issues.

    “Our election at the convention was mostly based on consensus, this is exactly what will be repeated at the primaries and we will forge ahead as a party,” the lawmaker said.
