The Vice Presidential candidate decried the present state of affairs in the nation which has made the country to drop to the last as the poorest country in the world. He noted that the difficulty experienced by Nigerians are as a direct result of poor economic policies and wastage by government.
Chukwueke wondered at how a country so richly blessed in human and mineral resources, could be having such economic challenges. He regretted that the people are the ones adversely affected by the current economic dilemma while those in government and the political class continue to gluttonously gorge themselves with our common patrimony.
Chief Chukwueke condemned the level of insecurity in the country, stating clearly that the various incidences of mass murder, armed robbery, rape, kidnapping, hunger, lack, deprivation, oppression and molestation are strong indications that government has failed.
He however declared that hope is on the way as APGA is poised to remodel Nigeria's economy to serve the people's interest first. Chukwueke noted that APGA's governance and economic policies are deeply rooted in the total and holistic emancipation, liberation and reorientation of the people and the establishment of an egalitarian Nigeria.
The VP candidate noted that a model of APGA's economic strategy exist already I Anambra State, where despite meagre resources, the government of Chief Willie Obiano, continues to set the pace in all facets of the economy. He observed that Anambra has become a model for other states of the federation to emulate, extolling the virtues of Gov Obiano who has masterfully and prudently managed the resources of the state to provide security, infrastructural development and good governance for Ndi Anambra. This he said, has positioned Anambra as the safest and most peaceful state and fourth largest economy in Nigeria.
Chief Chukwueke reiterated that it is APGA's vision to replicate this model if voted to power in the 2019 elections. He confirmed that APGA's mission is to introduce such economic policies that will empower the people, stabilize the economy and introduce lasting unity and peace in the nation.
