The party was reacting to a statement by the Finance Minister on Thursday, that the country may go into recession due to the slowing down in economic activities.
Speaking with SaharaReporters on Friday, PDP spokesperson, Kola Ologbodiyan said that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration had mismanaged the economy for the second time and bleeding Nigeria into recession. He said:
“What Nigerians would have expected the Minister of Finance to say is that the Buhari administration had bled this nation into a recession a record second time. That’s what they should have said, I would have also expected her to apologise to Nigerians for bringing this fate upon them.
“It is wrong to go and say in front of National Assembly members that Nigerians should expect recession. Everybody already knows that we are in a recession and this is the second time that this government is bleeding Nigerians into a recession.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Zainab Ahmed had last year said that Nigeria was not enmeshed in debt crisis as speculated by many.
