John Oyegun, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says the party is suffering from “strains of funding”, but it does not intend to bother President Muhammadu Buhari because raising funds for the party is not part of his national assignment.
Oyegun, who stated this at an interactive session with journalists at the APC headquarters in Abuja, said that the party was working to raise funds within itself.
“The party is suffering the strains of funding,” he said.
“We are working to raise resources within the membership. We have not asked for rescue from the president because it is not part of his national assignment.”
Oyegun also commented on the general state of the nation, lamenting that the present government inherited a prostrate economy.
“Buhari inherited a collapsed economy. What we are doing is to clear the debris,” he said.
“There will be plenty of good news in the next few months. We have to put up with the present deprivation. But we will smile tomorrow.”
Speaking on the anti-corruption campaign of the Buhari administration, the APC national chairman said that the government was not selective in its fight, but added that the probing of the immediate past PDP administration was necessary because the erstwhile ruling party held Nigeria down for 16 years.
“We are investigating yesterday. Let tomorrow investigate us,” he said.
