The PDP assertion signed by the occasion’s Nationwide Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba stated the President and the APC are solely organising Dr. Doyin Salami to fail and urged the economist to not waste his time.

Naija Information remembers President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday accredited the appointment of Dr. Doyin Salami as his Chief Financial Adviser.

However the PDP in its response stated it’s meaningless for the President to nominate an financial adviser barely a yr to the tip of his tenure in workplace.

It added that the appointment is simply an try and arrange Dr. Salami because the scapegoat for the Buhari administration’s poor financial efficiency and gross mismanagement of the nation’s economic system.

Ologunagba additional stated each the President and the APC wouldn’t have listening ears therefore regardless of the nice intention or high quality of recommendation given by the brand new financial adviser, it gained’t be applied and Salami has merely been set as much as fail.

The total assertion as made out there to our newsroom reads: “The Peoples Democratic Celebration (PDP) describes the appointment of Dr. Doyin Salami by President Muhammadu Buhari as Chief Financial Adviser barely a yr to finish of his disastrous administration as a design to make the economist a scapegoat for the abysmal failures of the All Progressives Congress (APC) authorities.

It’s evident that Dr. Salami would possibly find yourself being rubbished and diminished as a titular adviser on condition that the Buhari Presidency and the APC, of their ignorance, vanity and incompetence, are by no means identified to have any respect or regard for skilled recommendation on governance and coverage.

So long as the APC, with its insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians is in authorities, concerned professionals like Dr. Salami can by no means make a headway however threat being smeared with failure.

If the APC authorities didn’t take heed to Dr. Salami because the Head of the hurriedly established Presidential Financial Advisory Council (PEAC), it won’t now take his recommendation in his new capability as a result of the APC authorities lacks the listening ears, competence, capability, integrity and political will and want for good governance.

President Buhari and the APC have by no means prioritized the economic system. The result’s a close to collapsed economic system with two recessions inside six years; a 71 % poverty charge, 33.1 % unemployment charge, over $38 billion exterior debt and an unenviable nationwide standing because the poverty capital of the world. For this, they desperately search to make use of famend professionals like Dr. Salami as fall guys particularly as we strategy the 2023 normal elections.

If President Buhari and the APC had listened to well-thought-out recommendation by patriotic Nigerians in addition to the PDP on tips on how to stabilize and develop the economic system, our nation wouldn’t be within the present financial quagmire the place over 80 million Nigerians can now not afford their each day meals and different primary requirements of life.

The APC did not heed the counsel to finish its corruption, open up and diversify our economic system, assessment its restrictive and exclusionist insurance policies, make investments extra in our productive sectors, finish its victimization of hardworking Nigerian entrepreneurs, undertake broad-based strategy that enables for larger personal sector participation and cease demarketing our nation particularly the youths within the worldwide enviornment.

As a substitute, the Buhari-led administration remained torpid, nonchalant, unconcerned, hubristic and irredeemably narcissistic. It turned itself right into a cesspit of corruption and continued to offer official cowl to inept, reckless and treasury-looting APC leaders and their cronies in authorities.

Dr. Salami ought to subsequently shield his picture by advising President Buhari to finish his reckless borrowing and develop the economic system by permitting for extra transparency, redirecting the sources being siphoned by APC leaders to important sectors of the economic system, particularly energy and agriculture and giving hardworking Nigerians, particularly the youths, larger incentives for energetic participation within the nationwide economic system.

For emphasis our Celebration admonishes Dr. Salami to notice that his process of advising an incompetent, smug and corrupt administration could be grueling if not a whole waste of time.”
