Oby Ezekwesili blames Buhari govt for Nigeria’s recession


Oby Ezekwesili
A former Education minister, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, has blamed President Muhammadu Buhari government for the recession that affected Nigeria within the past three years.
She said this while responding to a question on the state of Nigeria in the past three years on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme, on Monday.
The BringBackOurGirls campaigner, however, noted that Buhari would have averted the recession from hitting Nigeria with good policies.
According to Ezekwesili, “Nigeria is not better in the past three years. The reason is that if you look at the simple indicator of how better Nigeria is, it will be your income per capital that reduces drastically because of the dent to GDP that resulted in the oil price collapsed.
“It is because of the oil price that collapsed from $100billion to about $50 billion.
“There were no right policies in place and the problem was that this Buhari led government did not adjust using the right economic policies and approach to avert the recession that hit Nigeria at that time.”
