Stop blaming Buhari and Jonathan… think out of the box - Kwara gov to Nigerians | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Abdulfatah Ahmed, governor of Kwara state, has advised Nigerians to stop blaming President Muhammad Buhari or any of the nation’s past leaders for the economic recession in the country.

Ahmed gave the advice on Wednesday in Ilorin while receiving members of the Kwara state Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (KWACCIMA).

He said instead of blaming anybody for the country’s economic woes, Nigerians should collectively think outside of the box for an enduring solution.

Ahmed said there is nowhere in the world where a nation runs a mono economy like Nigeria without running into economic recession.

“Over the years, the money earned from oil-driven economy did not go into regenerative programmes, but went into consumption and payment of petroleum subsidy,” he said.

“So what do you think will happen?  The economy cannot be better.  It is not the fault of Buhari or Jonathan; it is the fault of Nigeria’s leadership from inception. It is the fault of everybody.

“As a people, we must begin to see how we can improve our resourcefulness. Enough of blame game, it won’t take us anywhere.

“Once we improve on human capital development, we can begin to drive entrepreneurship and we would begin to move out of the recession.”

Earlier, Ahmed Raji, president of KWACCIMA, commended Ahmed for his “giant strides” on infrastructure development, provision of education and health facilities in spite of the dwindling economy.

He said the chamber was working towards assisting some of its members in resuscitating ailing industries in the state.

  1. You tell presidency to think out of the Box. Not Nigerias

    1. But all are Nigerians including president, you and me.... So i think he is right bro

    2. Yeah! We're all Nigerians, but, some of us feel they know more than others, hence, they put themselves at the driver's seat to direct the affairs of the Nation. If they don't know what next to do, they should honorably resign and give room for those who can think outside the box as he's coined it. He shouldn't shift his and his colleagues responsibility to the poor masses.

  2. I am thinking out of the box no be today. In fact out of Nigeria. Biafra is a must and that is out of the box called a zoo. Only a matter of time. Thank you buhari and all the haters of Igbos who have managed to ensure the growth of the mindset for freedom.

  3. The governor himself is not thinking out of the box. He is feeding on Government allocation. Is that thinking out of the box?
    Thank God. He has just learnt a new phrase and has this opportunity to use it.
