Nigeria in economic depression not economic recession – Agoro …To pick Mrs Buhari as Running Mate in 2019


By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan.
National Chairman of National Action Council (NAC) Dr Olapade Agoro on Tuesday declared that Nigeria is presently in economic depression and not in economic recession contrary to the claim by the Federal government.
Dr Agoro who stated this in Ibadan during a chat with newsmen also hinted of his intention to nominate wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Hadjia Aisha Buhari as his running mate for the 2019 Presidential election.
The NAC former Presidential candidate said as far as he was concerned, “we are in depression. There is a clear-cut difference between recession and depression”.
“I won’t say we are in recession. To me, we are in depression. The economy is depressed.  The political scene is depressed. We are under the weight of inconsequentialities,” he said.
Dr Agoro added “we are in trouble as a nation. To begin with, let me say that Buhari is doing a great job in his anti- corruption fight. It is a pity that I told President Buhari that he has nothing to do in Nigeria”.
“Can the saint perform in this Nigeria? I feel sorry for the man. He is dogged on his principle of zero tolerance for corruption. That was why he overlooked some senior police officers and settled for Idris Kpotum as the Inspector- General of Police. Everyone knows that Idris too has zero tolerance for corruption like the President. So, the new IGP cannot afford to condone corruption. If Buhari catches him, he will send him packing”.
The NAC leader stressed further that “we are where we are today because some rotten eggs, who don’t believe in anything good in life had eaten deep into the man fabrics of Nigeria”.
Speaking on the 2019 elections, Dr Agoro said, “if I have my way, I will nominate Aisha Buhari as my running mate in 2019,” adding, “I am looking forward to meeting with Buhari and tell him that Aisha is not fit for the kitchen. Aisha is the embodiment of grace and honour among the womenfolk and we are in the era of women emancipation where you can’t hold the women down”.
“I will seek appointment with Buhari and beg him to release the woman for me as my running mate in 2019. I will soon be in Lagos where I will address my international press conference on this and other burning issues”.
