Buhari Has No Solution To Economic Crisis - APC Chieftain

– A former APC governorship aspirant in Benue state, Nath Apir, says the Buhari led government has failed to do the needful to sustain the level of economic growth recorded by the previous administration

– Says Nigeria is in shambles, adding that the people can hardly feed and that the naira has crashed to over N400 to the dollar

– Apir casts doubts on President Buhari’s ability to proffer solution to the economic crisis.

Apir says President Buhari cannot assemble a group of yes sir people and expect good results because there is no one to challenge him.
A former All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant in Benue state, Nath Apir, says Nigerians are currently regretting voting for President Muhammadu Buhari at the last general elections.

Apir, reacting to the declaration by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) that the nation’s economy has gone into recession, lamented that the APC led government had failed to do the needful to sustain the level of economic growth recorded by the Goodluck Jonathan-led administration.

Vanguard reports that the social critic who spoke on Thursday, September 1, in Makurdi said the Nigerian economy was performing above average during the last administration.
He said it took the President Buhari-led administration six months to appoint ministers in a country which was rated by the World Bank and the IMF as Africa’s largest and number one economy.

He complained that Nigeria is in shambles, adding that the people can hardly feed and that the naira has crashed to over N400 to the dollar.
He said the administration talks of recovering money from looters but Nigerians have not seen where the revered monies have gone to.

He said: “He has just aggravated our economic situation in the country. Six months no Minister and the country was drifting and has not recovered till today and he has brought us to this level. Nigerians are regretting voting Buhari, that is the truth.
“All his policies had been anti corruption, by the time he came in as military ruler in 1983 we resorted to the purchasing of essential commodities. We are back to that vicious circle. We are back to anti corruption war without real economic policies.”

Apir said Buhari has no solution to the economic crisis, noting that the experience of the finance minister is low.
He said the president cannot assemble a group of yes sir people and expect good results because there is no one to challenge him.

Meanwhile, the APC has reacted to attacks by the opposition party, claiming that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is to be blamed for Nigeria’s recession.
APC on Thursday, September 1, launched an acerbic counter-attack on the opposition PDP, accusing the party and Nigeria’s past presidents produced under its platform of bringing the current economic recession upon the nation.
The ruling party said the 16 years misrule of the PDP plunged Nigeria into the current economic chaos.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
