Speaking at the Presidential Quarterly Business Forum on Monday, Osinbajo stated that the nature of the recession must be understood and evaluated in order to ascertain how the country got to its current financial status and what the way forward should be, Vanguard reports.
“If we did not have vandalism in the Niger Delta as we are currently suffering, we will not have this recession today. Moreover, in looking at the solutions, we should try to focus on the type of problem we have and what instigated it then we can begin to come up with better solutions,” he said.
