Fastest-growing economy: Don’t be harbinger of

The Special Assistant to President Goodluck
Jonathan on New Media, Reno Omokri, has urged
the opposition, All Progressives Congress, APC,
not to be harbinger of negative stories about the
country.
He noted that it is regrettable that while the APC is
always the first to propagate negative and sad
stories about Nigeria, the party is always reluctant
to admit and celebrate good news about the
country.
Omokri was reacting to the recent rating of Nigeria
as the third fastest-growing economy by
international Cable News Network, CNN.
He added that it is regrettable that the opposition
will not celebrate the positive outlook but would
have rushed to the media with press releases if it
was the other way round.

“When Gen. Muhammadu Buhari was making his
Presidential Declaration he said and I quote “the
economy is down”. With this rating by the experts
it is now clear that the economy is up. Perhaps
Gen. Buhari was referring to his time as military
Head of State when the economy was truly down
and Nigeria could not meet its international
financial obligations”.
Continuing further, Omokri said “This present
rating is not a fluke. Do not forget that the
UNCTAD said that Nigeria has the 4th highest rate
of return in the world, that the International Food
Policy Research Institute said that hunger in
Nigeria is reducing, that the World Bank said that
poverty in Nigeria is down by 2%, that
Transparency International said that corruption in
Nigeria had reduced. The APC are sad and quiet
because of these strides and because CNN says
Nigeria is the worlds 3rd fastest growing economy.
They would have been happy and loud If we were
least growing. It is saddening that APC play
politics with everything. They will either labour to
discredit this fact or cast aspersion on the integrity
of the organisation. It is sad that APC do not want
to hear anything good about Nigeria”
Speaking further, he said the desperation of APC
for power and eagerness to discredit the
achievements of the Jonathan’s administration has
made the party insensitive to the plight of
Nigerians.
Arguing that opposition is not about been
harbinger of negative stories, he recalled that the
opposition in France united with the government
during the Paris attack, which attracted global
attention.
“The whole world united behind France during the
Paris attack because the opposition did not go to
the press the following day, insulting the president
or the army. The world became ‘Charles’ (the
global slogan used in the fight against the attack).
When Osama struck America, it was under a
Republican government but Obama led-Democrat
government killed him. Bush was not called names
by the opposition. Obama never said the killing of
Osama is a victory for his party but for America
and Americans,” he said.
Omokri said the rating is a testament of the
prudent economy policies of the government and
the tenacity of Nigerians.
“I am without doubt that Nigerians are happy with
the rating outlook, which will spur the government
to do more. It is a plus to Nigeria and a
confidence boost to Nigerians that notwithstanding
the economy challenges and the drop in the global
price of oil, the country is still on the path of
prosperity and economy development. The
president has always maintained that there are
challenges but this administration is more than
determined to tackle them and transform the
country for a prosperous future,” he said.
Omokri noted that the president remains
committed to his pact with Nigerians.
“President Jonathan remains committed to his
pact with Nigerians. For him, it is not about him or
PDP; it is not about religion or ethnicity but what
is best for Nigeria. He recognises our challenges,
he does not shy away from them which was why
he came up with the transformation agenda which
is a practical step on how to address the
challenges and make the country attain her full
potentials and fulfil the dreams of our heroes past
and forefathers”.
CNN Money, a business analysis programme, on
Friday listed Nigeria as one of the fastest growing
economies for 2015.
According to the report, in 2014, Nigeria’s
Economy grew by 7.1 per cent.
It said that in 2015 the economy was expected to
grow by another 7 per cent.
“By our estimate, the fastest growing economies in
2015 will be China, Qatar and Nigeria.
“Nigerian economy, growing by 7.0% came after
China 7.3%, and Qatar 7.1%,” it said.[b]
