PDP chieftain chides Buhari for dwindling economy

19 January 2016, 19:08

Ebonyi - A Peoples Democratic Party, chieftain in Ebonyi State, Abia Onyike, has blamed the Buhari-led administration for the dwindling economy the country is experiencing, Vanguard reports.

Onyike, while defending the immediate past administration of President Goodluck Jonathan said the Federal Government was in the habit of blaming the past administration for its inability to tackle the economic challenges presently bedeviling the country.

He said the Buhari-led administration was yet to make any new or original impact on the economy of the nation, apart from buck-passing and uncoordinated anti-corruption crusade.

He stated that President Buhari's continuous disregard for court ruling shows that the president is only paying lip service to entrenching the values of democracy in the country.

He called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately set up a non-partisan economic recovery team made up of astute economic and financial wizards with the mandate to rescue the country from imminent economic retrogression.
