Economic recession: Jibrin faults Senator Melaye on Buhari, Adeosun, others

Honourable Abdulmumin Jibrin, a former Chairman of House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation on Monday faulted call on President Muhammadu Buhari to sack some of his Ministers over the worsening state of the Nigerian economy by Dino Melaye, the Senator representing Kogi West in the upper chamber of the National Assembly. Jibrin said such calls may not been borne out of genuine patriotism but by sentiments, envy or simply for an opportunity to join the fray. In a statement he issued in Abuja, Jibrin also said President cannot be held responsible for the current economic challenges being faced by Nigerians since he came to office barely a year ago.
