The Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, on Friday said President Bola Tinubu inherited a “dead horse but standing” economy.
Soludo said this while speaking during an interview on Channels TV.
The former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor also spoke on Tinubu’s stance against spending 90 per cent of the country’s revenue on external debt service.
He said, “This government inherited, from a macroeconomic standpoint, I would say the economy was like a dead horse but standing, in macroeconomic terms and modelling through this over the coming months we will bumpy, no question about it.”
According to Soludo, his position was in “empathy and commiserations” for Tinubu’s economic team.
“But I am glad that at least, the first salvos by the president, by his courageous step to remove the obnoxious scam that has festered over the years called petrol subsidy and then dealing with the exchange rate,” he added.
