ABUJA — Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, General Muhammadu Buhari, has assured that if voted into power next month, his government would run a market based economy.


He also stated that the system would be operated with clear, unambiguous regulatory framework, effective enforcement mechanism and zero tolerance for corruption.

Buhari further promised that APC-led government “will insist on and cut out wastages and run a lean and efficient administration in order to have funds available for capital and development projects that will assure prosperity for all Nigerians.”

In a statement, yesterday, the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organisation, APCPCO, quoted Buhari as saying ahead of his town hall meeting at the Nike Lake Resort in Enugu today, that his envisaged presidency would deepen a viable free market economy in the country.

The statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity of the APCPCO, Mallam Garba Shehu in Abuja added that Nigerian citizens in business, foreign investors and young entrepreneurs under the APC presidency will enjoy equal incentives and friendly business and investment climate.

“It is envisaged that this will help them to participate and engage in productive economic and entrepreneurial activities geared towards the resuscitation and revamping of the nation’s economy and its capacity to generate millions of direct and indirect job opportunities for our teeming citizens,” it said.

It further stated that APC’s national economic policy would support and insist on diligent implementation of annual budgets to guarantee accountability and transparency in public resources management.

On corruption, the campaign organisation said the envisaged Buhari government would discourage over-bloated contracts.
