Economic recession is a reality, Emulate Nnewi and work together to build the nation - Gen Abubakar

Former Head of State, General Abdulsalam Abubakar, yesterday officially commissioned the new ultra modern Nnewi Hotel and Event Centre, Anambra State, with a call on all Nigerians to work together to build the nation.
Abubakar who is the chairman of the National Peace Committee, said that all hands must be on deck to ensure that the nation’s economy is re­vamped as that task should not be left in the hands of government alone.
He pointed out that the industrial town of Nnewi is already a shining ex­ample of how the private sector and individuals can contribute positively to­ward building the nation’s economy.

“Nnewi people have al­ready blazed the trail in the area of building the nation’s economy through individual efforts.
“I have gone round to see the factories in the town and I can say with all sense of responsibility that this is the best industrial cluster in Nigeria.
“People from other ar­eas should come to Nnewi to learn how the industri­alists here are doing it”, he said.
The former Head of State commended the in­dustrialists and manufac­turers in Anambra state for their efforts even as he urged them not to relent in the face of the present economic recession.
His words: “Economic recession is a reality we cannot run away from but with our collective ef­forts, we can jointly work together to reposition the nation and have a vibrant economy.
“In doing this, the pri­vate sector has major roles to play as we have seen in the Nnewi example.
“Recession is not pecu­liar to Nigeria because all over the world, there is economic recession, it is going to be tough but we have to be patient with the government.”
Speaking on the pre­vailing insecurity across the country, Abubakar said there is no need for the current agitation and tension because all nag­ging issues can be resolved through dialogue.
“We can sit at a round table to discuss. I am ap­pealing to all Nigerians to come together and discuss, no matter where they come from, and their grievances”, he stated.
The former Head of State had along with the hotel proprietor, Dr. Ben Aghazu, and other digni­taries earlier visited major companies in Nnewi, in­cluding Chikason Group, Ibeto Group, Ifeanyi Ubah games village.
Abubakar thereafter performed the commis­sioning of the hotel along­side the Anambra state governor, Chief Willie
