Obasanjo blames Jonathan for recession

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has blamed the Goodluck Jonathan administration for the current economic crisis in the country. Obasanjo explained that he warned Jonathan about spending more than the country’s earnings but his advice was ignored.

The former president made the comment on Tuesday, September 27, at the opening ceremony of the National Council on Finance and Economic Development Conference (NACOFED) in Abeokuta, Ogun State. 
“I reminded the government that we were spending more than we were earning. that very soon, the country would not be able to fund the budget… Unfortunately, the government then refused to listen to my advice,” Obasanjo said according to Daily Trust. The former president also gave three solutions to the current recession.
The three options are we have to spend less, we must endeavor to earn and then the last one is to borrow, and this if we must, we do it fast and now,” he said.
President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier also blamed Jonathan for the recession saying that he did not inherit any savings from his predecessor.
