The Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Aisha Alhassan, has said the APC is not responsible for the country’s economic recession.
Alhassan also stated that the Buhari-led government was determined to address the myriad of challenges facing the country including the economy.
The minister said this on Saturday in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State when she met with the APC women drawn from the 25 local government areas of the state.
Alhassan, who was represented on the occasion by the Coordinator for Women Empowerment, Chief Akukalia Angela, assured the people that the present administration was passionate about developing women and reducing hunger in the country.
“The present process of economic recession is not caused by the APC-led government; rather, it was caused by the immediate past government, who looted the nation’s treasury and threw the people into hardship.
“The APC will do everything humanly possible to put Nigeria back on the right positive track,” she said.
She added that the ministry had begun the distribution of forms to women organisations and groups through the National Empowerment Fund to various states to assist them in their chosen professions.
The APC Woman Leader in the state, Dr. Janeth Oyubu, while pledging the support of the APC women in the state for the government, alleged that the PDP government had hijacked all the palliatives initiated by the Buhari government.
Oyubu added, “Don’t be carried away with peanuts from the ailing PDP. I can assure you that APC has all it takes to transform your well-being by empowering you so that you can be helpful to your family and the society.”
