Rep blames recession on bad policies
A member of House of the Representatives, representing Ekiti North 1 of the Ikole/Oye Federal Constituency, Kehinde Agboola, yesterday blamed the economic recession on what he described as “bad economic policies the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has adopted.”
He said Nigerians are tired of the government excuses and blaming of past governments for its inaction and bad policies that are causing hardship in the country.
Agboola, who spoke at Ijesa-Isu Comprehensive High School during his empowerment programme, tagged, ‘Education Support Project,’ where he distributed past questions to final year secondary school students and paid for free coaching for students of over 20 schools in the constituency, attributed the current hardship to the gross failure of government and older generation to allow the younger ones take over the baton of leadership.
“It is rather unfortunate that instead of this government to listen to people on areas they are getting it wrong, they are blaming their poor performance on the immediate past government.
“But Nigerians should reason better that if indeed it were the fault of former government, this challenge would have risen then.
“When Buhari came in, he was only shouting fight against corruption and all that, but he didn’t have any economic policies to make our economy work. He only came to haunt his perceived political enemies, who to him are corrupt.
“In the APC government today, are there no corrupt people? We know many people in government today who are corrupt, but the government has not done anything to them,” he said.
On his interest in moulding the younger people, he said: “That we have aged leaders struggling with their health to rule us today is a clear indication that Nigerian leadership class has failed over the time.
“I am mentoring these young ones today so that when I am not a representative again, they can step into my shoes.”
