If Jonathan was still in power, Nigerians would have been refugees by now – Segun Oni

Engr. Segun Oni, former governor of Ekiti State and Deputy national chairman (South) of the All Progressives Congress APC has criticized the administration of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan for causing depression and economic recession.

Engr Oni said this i an interview with Vanguard Newspaper on Thursday.

When asked that some Nigerians have accused the APC of not knowing what to do with the economy, He said: “Well, the public is right to expect that we would do magic, but the right thing is, there is no magic way out of the problems on ground for Nigeria.

The economy was trumatized by a government whose only agenda was to win another round. Therefore, everything that they could put into trying to win a second round even bastardising the economy were done, and we are all here now.

He said: "Fortunately for them, I would say they are not there any longer. The reality on ground is that if the previous Government were in power, by now, Nigeria would have virtually packed up; may be many of us would be refugees by now.

"So, it is very easy not to remember where we are coming from. Yes, we were elected to do the impossible, we will do our best. I just want to plead that people should give us more realistic expectations.

"This economy must work, we must get Nigeria back, but it is not as quick as most people would imagine or just by a touch of the hand. So, people are entitled to their expectations, we as a government, we will do our best to ensure that the end would justify this cause.

We were not elected to run Nigeria for one or two years; we were elected to run Nigeria for four years and before we get to an appreciable length of time I am sure and confident that we would begin to see very obvious changes", he said.
