Oshiomhole: Nation’s Economic Challenges a Result of Inherited Crisis


Oshiomhole’s Insight into Economic Situation

Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the former National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the current representative of Edo North senatorial district in the National Assembly, shed light on the complex economic challenges faced by the nation. Speaking after a meeting with Vice President Kashim Shettima, Oshiomhole emphasized that President Bola Tinubu’s administration inherited a dire economic situation, which requires sustained efforts and careful decision-making to address.

No Quick Fixes for Economic Recovery

Oshiomhole stressed that the country’s economic issues cannot be swiftly resolved due to the intricate nature of the challenges inherited. He pointed out that the previous administration faced an economy where the overwhelming majority of the national revenue was dedicated to servicing debt, leaving little room to cover essential expenses such as salaries. Despite the complexity, Oshiomhole praised the administration’s determination to take unconventional measures to stabilize the economy and initiate positive changes.

Balancing Painful Decisions and Progress

While acknowledging that the administration’s economic policies have come with challenges, Oshiomhole likened them to a medicine with side effects. He emphasized that tackling a malfunctioning and complex economic system requires carefully weighing the costs and benefits of decisions. Oshiomhole highlighted the importance of synergy between various aspects of the government, including monetary and fiscal policies, to ensure effective progress. He appealed to Nigerians for understanding and patience, given the intricate nature of the economic crisis and the need for comprehensive solutions.
