    Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim has assured that his administration will prioritize rebuilding the nation’s economy if elected as President come 2023.

    Anyim is contesting for Nigeria’s number one political position in the forthcoming election under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Naija News reports.

    Addressing former members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party on Friday, Anyim said if given the chance, he will return the country to where it was under the leadership of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

    Recall that Jonathan was defeated by the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

    Nigeria’s economy according to Anyim, was rebased under Jonathan and became the largest in Africa.

    The Presidential aspirant said he wants to continue the 2015 journey if voted in by Nigerians “because we had a systematic plan to refocus the economy. Put the country on the part of peace and prosperity.”

    Anyim described himself as a crisis manager who has what it takes to tackle the prevailing situation in the country.

    He stressed that if Nigerians were worried about the present situation in the country and are telling the present administration to return them to 2015, “then you have no reason not to support me. At the senate, I inherited a troubled senate, but I stabilized the senate.”

    Anyim said further: “If you remember then our economy was rebased, Nigeria economy became the largest in Africa. Today where are we? ?here were policies we put in place to encourage foreign investors, but these are things we don’t do overnight, you have to be systematic. If you support me we can return this country to the path of peace, progress and prosperity.

    “The mistake that we must not make is the mistake that was made in 2015. In 2015, some of us in PDP simply decided to pull out of the trial and we were plunged into darkness that is why we are here today. We have to rescue this country.”

    The former senate president said the country needs a stabiliser, a crisis manager and these are things that he is known for.

    Anyim also said, “All through my service life, I had always worked in the presidency. I have not worked anywhere outside the presidency in all my life. As a civil servant, I worked in a parastatal under the presidency, as president of the senate working alongside the president and eventually as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation which is the engine room of the presidency.”
