The current economic recession in Nigeria is caused by incompetence and lack of vision of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said.
The PDP, in a statement yesterday, by its National Caretaker Committee spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said the economic policy of the APC-led government was responsible for the “current stagnation of the economy”.
The party described the statement credited to Governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa State that the Goodluck Jonathan-led government caused the nation’s economic recession as “disappointing”.
It stated that former President Goodluck should not be blamed for the nation’s economic woes, telling the APC that great leaders took over countries either in ‎recession or war and still succeeded in turning them around.
“Will Badaru and his party men continue to blame Jonathan and the PDP ‎‘till 2019 and use Jonathan for the 2019 campaign instead of showing ‎their scorecard? The good thing is that Nigerians who were being ‎hoodwinked at first, are now seeing through the deception of this ‎unending blame game.
“Any dispassionate assessment of economic performance ‎under Jonathan would obviously frown at Governor Badaru’s type of ‎impulsive conclusion without recourse to the strong macroeconomic ‎fundamentals recorded under Jonathan, which laid the foundation for ‎meaningful growth,” the statement added.
