Senate says Buhari is chasing away investors

21 September 2016, 16:03

Abuja - Senators have claimed President Muhammadu Buhari was discouraging investments into the country through his “body language” hence contributing to the economic recession.

The claim has made at the Senate sitting in Abuja where the House commenced the deliberation of on the economic challenges of the country with a view to recommending appropriate measures to address the issue.

A 13-point recommendation communiqué was released after the session, with point 10 standing out.

“Body language of Mr President must change,” read the communique.

“His body language discourages investment.”

The Senate’s position on Buhari is the latest in a series of spats between the Senate and the Executive. Senate President, Bukola Saraki, is under probe for corruption, with the executive alleged to be behind the charges said to be trumped up.

Meanwhile, also recommended the release of looted funds to boost the economy, a cabinet reshuffle, that the Federal Government renegotiate the price of crude oil with the oil majors, build confidence in local people and revamp the agricultural sector.

Senate spokesperson, Charles Akpan, said the debate would continue on Thursday.
