Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has attributed the current economic recession in the country to the activities of various militant groups in the Niger Delta region. Osinbajo said this while speaking at the Presidential Quarterly Business Forum at the State House, Abuja yesterday September 19th.
“It is important for us to understand the nature of this recession in which we have found ourselves. In discussing this issue of recession there is tendency for people to generalize. A lot depends on what sort of recession and how we got here. If we did not have vandalization in the Niger Delta as we are currently suffering, we will not have this recession today. Moreover in looking at the solutions, we should try to focus on the type of problem we have and what instigated it. Then we can begin to come up with better solutions” he said
