President Muhammadu Buhari has dismissed insinuation in
certain quarters that his administration is responsible for the current economic recession ravaging the country.
Speaking in Abuja, Buhari who insisted that his administration did not lead Nigeria into recession again blamed the current economic challenges on the mismanagement of the past governments.
Recall that Buhari had earlier in the year accused past administrations of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of been responsible for Nigeria’s current situation.
He stressed that no matter the scale of the problems facing the country, the important thing was how to tackle the current challenges.
According to the President, his administration was committed to resolving the current economic woes.
Buhari said, “In the last one and a half years of this administration, the economy has experienced some tough times, particularly with the decline in oil revenues, which has had a harsh impact on Nigerians at the grassroots.
