Buhari Has Not Done Enough For The Economy - Obasanjo

Former president of the federal republic of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has stated that president Muhammadu Buhari has not done enough to tackle Unemployment and the economic recession.

Obasanjo speaking with African arguments in a recent interview said: "Buhari has made some announcements. He has tried to keep on going in the area of agribusiness, but not enough. It is not yet enough to prepare the ground for the uninhibited growth of the economy, which we need".

OBJ also pointed out that in the political structure of the country, governors were more powerful than the president. He said; ‘In fact, state governors are more powerful than the president.That’s the truth’

The former leader also urged the president to do more in the area of youth empowerment. In his words; "All youth in Nigeria have legitimate reasons to feel frustrated and angry," adding that if "youth empowerment, skill acquisition and youth employment – education is provided the ticking bomb of possible youth explosion out of restiveness and anger will subside."

When asked about the Biafra agitations, OBJ said; "The protesters don’t even know what the struggle is all about, but if it gives them false hope, why not hang onto it?” “Let the elders handle it or ignore it until it loses momentum,” “There are elders in any community who are still respected…After all, they’re their fathers and mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers, and can still be used effectively."

He also revealed that he was not a believer of True Federalism;

"I don’t believe in true federalism. What is true federalism? “Why are they not accountable? What powers do they not have? In fact, state governors are more powerful than the president. That’s the truth,” ‘If anybody tells you they want devolution or true federalism, he doesn’t know what he is talking about. “The fact anybody talks about it doesn’t mean it’s right," he said.
