Professor Charles Soludo, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has lashed out at former president Goodluck Jonathan for the present state of Nigeria’s economy.
Soludo believes that the current woes of the country are as a result of Jonathan’s recklessness as the country’s leader, a situation which he believes can only be salvaged with time.
According to New Telegraph, the ex-CBN governor said that the economy nosedived to an unprecedented state during the regime.
Soludo made the declaration in Lagos as a guest lecturer at the Realnews Magazine Online’s third anniversary lecture, where he also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to take proactive steps in reviving the economy.
After carpeting Jonathan’s administration for plunging the country’s economy into the current mess, the finance expert tasked Buhari to double the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) from $550 billion to $1.1 trillion in 12 -16 years’ time.
Meanwhile, a former president of the United States, Jimmy Carter does not see the ex-president in that light. He (Carter) believes that Jonathan is the symbol of Africa’s democracy.
