A two-time Senator of the Federal Republic, Nkechi Nwaogu, has formally pitched her tent with the All Progressives Congress.
Nwaogu,who has represented Abia Central Senatorial District for eight years, condemned the economic policies of the immediate past government of former President Goodluck Jonathan, saying they were shrouded in secrecy.
She was at the national headquarters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja on Thursday, where she said she came to express her appreciation to the national leadership of the party for its support and concern during her late husband’s funeral.
Speaking in company of two of the APC Board of Trustees members, Chief Sam Nkire and Chief Chris Akomas, a former deputy governor of Abia State, the Senator stated that those who are joining or have joined APC are people of positive minds.
She commended APC and President Muhammadu Buhari for the new mantra of change.
“l am here to fraternize myself once again with my party, APC, to identify myself, to associate myself with the change train and anybody today in this country who does not realise that this is a divine mandate given to APC to usher in change to sustain change, to bring about change in all endeavours of our lives especially in our economic lives is not realistic.
“We all know what has been happening or what has happened in the economy of our dear nation that it was shrouded in secrecy. Thanks to the emergence of Buhari and the change doctrine, change mantra and change advocates.
“Those who have sworn not to conceived anything of the truth would not see this change because even the Bible tell us that it is only the truth that can set us free.
“For us to attempt to bring to a level of acceptance for the President to remove the present level of unemployment, to remove or try to see how we can increase our revenue, to see that we have no other country other than Nigeria, therefore everybody has a contribution to make towards revamping this nation.
“This nation is blessed with natural resources. It beholds on us to put our brains and our contributions together as citizens of this nation to ensure that when we train our children out from tertiary institutions, that they do not come out to roam in the street. They say an idea man is a devil’s workshop.
“I am pledging to the family of APC that I am now part of APC that is to say that wherever l would be called upon l will serve and l also use this medium to solicit to everybody who has agreed to join this party to ensure that you have something positive to contribute towards nation building,” she said.
