APC senator berates Buhari over economic recession

07 September 2016, 18:09

Lagos - The Senator representing Lagos West Senatorial District, Senator Solomon Adeola (APC) has berated President Muhammadu Buhari for not doing enough to reverse the economic recession facing the country, reports Daily Post.

Adeola, who is the vice chairman of Senate Committee on Communications said that it is worrisome that government at all levels are not treating the issue of recession with the urgency it requires to ensure that its duration is not unduly prolonged with untold suffering and even deaths of majority of Nigerians.

While acknowledging that the recession at this time is not peculiar to Nigeria, Senator Adeola said that the difference here is that not much is being done to assure the people that government is on top of the situation in terms of marshaling out implementable policies to address the plight of groups that are now hit by the recession.

He said members of Buhari’s kitchen cabinet are still acting lackadaisically instead of creating policies to help distressed organizations and individuals.

Adeola noted that he had expected the team to be dishing out policy options and direction in forms of palliative for the poor, bailout/loans for distressed organizations like Innosson Motors and airlines in dire need.

He stated that the government must sit up by providing palliative measures that would help struggling Nigerians.
