An erstwhile Minister of Special Duties, Mr Kabiru Turaki has hinted that the current economic situation (recession) that has befallen the country would have been prevented under the Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) era.
While speaking with newsmen in Abuja, he blamed the current economic travails on the All Progressives Congress (APC) unpreparedness for governance, adding that the ruling party failed to put its house in order and blend as a political party.
Mr Turaki explained that things would have been better if ex-President Jonathan was re-elected into office in 2015.
He said: “I’m a lawyer but despite that, we all know what is happening in Nigeria. When you have a political party that has come into an election without been prepared for governance; when you have a party that does not do its homework well; when you have a party that is yet to blend as a political party, then the recession is something that is bound to happen.
“I must concede right away that there are challenges all over but then, things (the economy) would have been better probably, if PDP were in office.”
