A former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in the last election, has given his major reason Nigeria slide into another recession.

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar said this administration of President Buhari must swallow its pride and accept its limitations.

The present administration has failed to heed to his advice and that of other well-meaning citizens, Atiku added.

He received the confirmation of another recession, the second time in five years, with a heavy heart.

“Because this could have been avoided had this administration taken heed to the patriotic counsel given by myself and other well-meaning Nigerians on cutting the cost of governance, saving for a rainy day, and avoiding profligate borrowing,” Atiku said in a statement he shared on Twitter on Sunday morning.

The former PDP Presidential Candidate also noted that a second recession could have been avoided by practicing disciplined and prudent management of the economy despite the Coronavirus pandemic.

However, Atiku said everyone must focus on solutions, adding that the Nigerian government needs critical leadership to guide her back to the path of economic sustainability.

Atiku further pointed out that it is inhumane for the Federal government to increase the cost of goods and services that affect the poor masses while keeping luxuries reasonably stable.

He warned President Buhari’s government against further borrowing for anything other than essential needs or to engage in White Elephant projects.

“I urge the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to swallow its pride, and accept its limitations, so that they can open their minds to ideas, without caring who the messenger is.”
