    GEJ has liberated the press and guaranteed the freedom of speech in this country where the stifling of the press and suppression of the citizens’ right to freedom of speech used to be the norm, a legacy of over 30 years of military rule. The existence of vocal anti-government media houses and critics would have culminated in some high-profile assassinations some years back, but today citizens are free to air their views whenever and wherever they like just like any other sane country…….GEJ all the way

Recession: Nigeria Is Broke, Can’t Afford 2021 Budget – Atiku

Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice-President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has expressed that the Federal Government should reconsider the 2021 budget owing to the recession.

Nigeria officially entered into its worst economic recession in 33 years after the nation recorded a GDP contraction of 3.62 percent in the third quarter of 2020.

He stated that Nigeria is broke and cannot afford the luxurious items in the N13.08 trillion budget proposal.

Atiku in a Twitter thread on Sunday stated that COVID-19 only complicated an existing economic problem.

Atiu went on to express that had President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration listened to advice, the recession could have been avoided.

“We could have avoided this fate by a disciplined and prudent management of our economy.”

“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.

He further said that now is not the time to trade blames but to focus on ways to manage the situation and called on Buhari’s government to “swallow its pride, and accept its limitations, so that they can open their minds to ideas, without caring who the messenger is.”
