Get a smart economic team, PDP advises Buhari

THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told President Muhammadu Buhari to get a smart economic team to revive the economy, rather than constantly complaining and blaming the past administration.

Responding to the assertion made by the president in his Sallah message on Sunday, the party, in its own sallah message, reminded the president that it was only by having a competent team that he could solve the present economic woes of the country.

“Mr President, in his sallah message today, again blamed the present acute  economic recession on the past administration and global economic downturn.

“Let Mr President and his Party, the APC, be reminded that it took a smart and experienced world-class economic team in 2010 to lead Nigerians through a cushioned global financial meltdown and beyond.

“It is, therefore, high time they stopped this unnecessary grumbling and concentrate on how to redeem our economy by providing good governance to the people,” the party said.

The opposition party, under the leadership of Senator Ahmed Makarfi, felicitated with Muslims on the occasion of Eid-el-Kabir.

It advised all Nigerians, especially the political and ruling class in the country, to emulate Father Abraham for his willingness and total obedience to the will of God by agreeing to sacrifice his only son.
