As the country battles with COVID-19, so also its facing economic breakdown.
Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, has been asked by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to apologise to Nigerians for leading the country into its second recession.
According to the minister on Thursday said, that Nigeria may likely go into recession due to the slowing down in economic activities.
In a statement on Friday, PDP spokesperson, Kola Ologbodiyan, told newsmen that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration had mismanaged the economy for the second time, that’s why Nigerians may likely to face such challenges.
He said, “What Nigerians would have expected the Minister of Finance to say is that the Buhari administration had bled this nation into a recession a record second time. That’s what they should have said, I would have also expected her to apologise to Nigerians for bringing this fate upon them.
“It is wrong to go and say in front of National Assembly members that Nigerians should expect recession. Everybody already knows that we are in a recession and this is the second time that this government is bleeding Nigerians into a recession.”
