The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, to apologise for leading the country into recession for the second time.

Ahmed had on Thursday said the country is on thr verge on another recession, due to slow economic activities as a result of unstable oil prices and COVID-19 pandemic.

However spokesperson for the main opposition party, Kola Ologbodiyan, said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration had mismanaged the economy for the second time at the detriment of Nigerians.

He said, “What Nigerians would have expected the Minister of Finance to say is that the Buhari administration had bled this nation into a recession a record second time. That’s what they should have said, I would have also expected her to apologise to Nigerians for bringing this fate upon them.

“It is wrong to go and say in front of National Assembly members that Nigerians should expect recession. Everybody already knows that we are in a recession and this is the second time that this government is bleeding Nigerians into a recession.”
