Former Special Assistant to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan on New Media, Reno Omokri, has said the country is going through recession because of those President Buhari appointed to form his cabinet.

He blamed the president for appointing ministers who are not worthy of the position, saying instead of concentrating more on the business of governance, Buhari is more committed to reading and watching cartoons.

Omokri, on his Facebook page wrote: “When you have someone who graduated with a BSc from a polytechnic (University of East London was a polytechnic at the time Kemi Adeosun attended and it was only upgraded to university status in 1992) as your finance minister in a country that has highly educated, skilled and experienced hands from every part of the nation, what you are begging for is a recession.

“When you combine it with a minister of agriculture who read French you are inviting famine.

“However, it is not from my mouth you will hear what will happen when you have a President who, during a recession, prioritizes reading cartoons over other serious issues in a newspaper.”

Recall that Omokri recently charged the President to appoint capable hands into his cabinet, calling for the sack of Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun,
