Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, has come under fire from Umar Sani, a former senior special adviser on media and publicity to Vice President Namadi Sambo, for saying that Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, is copying the economic strategy of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
Mohammed’s statement, according to Sani, was absurd and he lacked original thought.
On Friday’s Morning Show of BROOMHOME, he revealed this.
Atiku recently discussed his economic plan at a gathering in Lagos, and Mohammed on Thursday, when addressing with journalists at the national press center in Abuja, accused Atiku of mimicking the current administration under Buhari.
No one knows the plan that Atiku claims possession of besides the Federal Government, argues Mohammed.
“It is quite hilarious and ridiculous for Lai Mohammed or the APC to discuss any economic strategy. How has our economy performed for us to continue stealing their own blueprint when President Muhammadu Buhari’s term is practically about to come to an end? First and foremost, our economy is on the verge of collapse and every economic indicator that should have been broken has been, according to Sani.
Even the recession is imminent. Once more, Nigeria was a popular investment location under the PDP. Investors are currently fleeing the nation. With regard to GDP, Nigeria led. During the PDP, Nigeria’s economy was running smoothly. The micro and microeconomic conditions were ideal, the currency rate was favorable, and still there will be discussion of someone taking your plan. Which plan do you have that is unable to change Nigeria’s economy and that is causing turmoil there?
“I believe they lack ideas and rational reasoning, which is why they want to hold the PDP accountable for everything, in my opinion. Using this one to claim that we stole their plan is only a mockery of the effectiveness of their budget since it is their custom to blame PDP.
