“Strong membership and that’s really great. I hope the first thing they do is tell the President how he mismanaged the economy in the last 4 years.”

“For those who will jump on this timeline to say, ‘It was not the President that was in charge of the economy. It was the VP chairing the Economic Team’ please don’t bother.”

“The President was managing the economy. All those bad monetary policy decisions were made by him.”

“Two, the President was managing the economy. All those strange fiscal policy decisions were made by him. Both the CBN Governor and the Ministers of Finance were not acting based on any Economic Management Team decisions. For WIA. Now at least the pretence is over about economy.”
