Dino Melaye was a guest on Channels TV yesterday where he said that the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, was incompetent to manage an economy like Nigeria.
“She has appeared before the senate on two occasions and from my own personal assessment, she does not have the competence, the wherewithal. You begin to ask yourself how many million dollars portfolio has she handled or managed before becoming a Minister of Finance.
A Minister of Finance, especially for an economy like Nigeria needs one who has grabbed knowledge of our situation, who can take us out of the woods, and there is no way you would continue to apply a particular medicine to a particular ailment and you are not getting solutions and you continue to take that drug. The drug becomes injurious to the system” he said.
Dino says although he is a member of APC, he needs to speak up as there is intense hunger in the land. He called for the sack or voluntary resignation of members of President Buhari’s economic team.
“The reason why I am calling for the sack of these individuals is because the magnitude and intensity of Hunger in the land is enormous. I am a member fo APC and a very proud one at that but Hunger has no political party. Poverty has no political party. You need to understand the intensity of hunger that is in the land”.
