The Senate President Bukola Saraki has disclosed that the Senate, after its recess, will invite some senior officials in the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to explain the recession in the economy. Saraki, who spoke to newsmen in Ilorin on Tuesday, stated that. “Any country that finds itself in this situation needs to come up with solutions that will address and help its people to come out of it. That means that it is a collective responsibility of all tiers of government. Recession or hardship does not know party. It does not select whether you are a member of the Peoples Democratic Party or the All Progressives Congress; or select whether you are from one part of the country or the other. It is the entire country and as such, it must be a collective responsibility to address it.
“The question we should ask those who are managing the economy is ‘how did we get it wrong? What are the indices that should have come up?’ One of the indices I think is confidence. There is a lack of confidence in the economy. Whether we like to accept it or not, people are not investing and bringing in money. Without that, we would have challenges. These are the areas that when the Senate resumes, we will have a robust debate. We will bring all those who are responsible to tell us what happened and I can assure Nigerians that we will not cover up anybody; we will let Nigerians know the truth. We will ensure that solutions are found and where people are not capable of delivering, we will advise the President accordingly on what needs to be done. This matter has gone beyond man-know-man. It is an issue that affects everybody and nobody is too big to be sacrificed in this process.”
