Edo State Governor Responds to Minister of Finance’ Denial of Printing N60Billion


…say our advice is that we stop playing the Ostrich 

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has responded to the Minister of Finanace, Budget and National Planning over her denial of printing N60billion to meet up with states’ allocation. The governor, in a statement said as follows;

While we do not want to join  issues with the Federal Ministry of Finance, we believe it is our duty to offer useful advice for the benefit of our country.

The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs. Zainab Ahmed should rally Nigerians to stem the obvious fiscal slide facing our country.

Rather than play the Ostrich, we urge the government to take urgent steps to end the current monetary rascality, so as to prevent the prevailing economic challenge from degenerating further.

We believe it is imperative to approach the Nigerian project with all sense of responsibility and commitment and not play to the gallery because ultimately, time shall be the judge of us all.
