RECESSION: Things’d’ve been better, if PDP were in office — Turaki
ABUJA—Former Minister of Special Duties, Mr Kabiru Turaki has blamed Nigeria’s current economic travails on All Progressives Congress, APC, unpreparedness for governance.
Turaki, who addressed newsmen in Abuja, disclosed that the economic condition of the country would have been better, if ex-President Goodluck Jonathan was re-elected into office in 2015.
He explained that the recession emanated from APC’s failure to put its house in order and blend as a political party.
He said: “I’m a lawyer but despite that, we all know what is happening in Nigeria. When you have a political party that has come into an election without been prepared for governance; when you have a party that does not do its homework well; when you have a party that is yet to blend as a political party, then the recession is something that is bound to happen.
“I must concede right away that there are challenges all over but then, things (the economy) would have been better probably, if PDP were in office.”
