My Government Not Responsible for Economic Recession - Buhari

All Progressives Congress National Party leader, President Buhari has played down reports of mismanaging the recessive economy of Nigeria. 

President Muhammadu Buhari has rejected the criticism that his handling of the economy led the country into a recession, ThisDay reports.

Speaking at the State House, in Abuja during a meeting with the Senior Executive Course No 38 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), he said that it was not his administration that led the country into recession.

It would be recalled that major critics of the APC-led administration have attributed the downward status of the economy to President Buhari who is currently struggling to end the economic woes of the country.

‎The president said: “In the last one and half years of this administration, the economy has experienced some tough times, particularly with the decline in oil revenues, which has some harsh impacts on Nigerians at the grassroots.

“It is also important to note that the economic recession is not the making of this administration, but rather a consequence of bad management of the economy in the past couple of decades. Nor is recession limited to Nigeria; there are far, far worse cases than Nigeria.”

The president, however, said that no matter the scale of the problem facing the country, the important thing was how to tackle it. He said his administration was committed to finding lasting solutions to the nation’s economic structural imbalance.

“Let us have faith in our great nation that we will come out of this recession vibrant and strong‎,” he added. Buhari accused the his predecessor, former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan of leaving an empty treasure behind.
