Economy failing because investors know Buhari not in charge – Saraki

Senate President Bukola Saraki, says the drop in Foreign Direct Investment in Nigeria is because most foreign investors are aware President Muhammadu Buhari not in charge of affairs in the country.

A recent report by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development indicated that Ghana has overtaken Nigeria as West Africa’s largest recipient of FDI.

Economy failing because investors know Buhari not in charge – Saraki


Speaking on AIT this morning, Saraki said on several occasions, President Buhari has shown he is not in charge of this government.

”You know we have said many times that there is a government within the government. It is clear that the private sector doesn’t have the confidence and that is why if you look at the level of direct investment in the country, you will see that it is low.

But our own candidate would drive that. He would be able to engage the private sector and inspire confidence to put in investment.” he said

  1. I’m afraid senator Bukola Saraki is right. Foreign investors nowadays believe it’s risky or not wise even, to invest in Nigeria. Hence, the shift of focus toward other countries like Ghana

  2. You people in the National Assembly caused the failing economy for not been in agreement with Buhari on how to move the economy forward.

  3. That is very try,Ghana is moving ahead of nigeria,i watched similar music video this morning which state so, i almost cried

  4. We all no he is not in charge because his not in a good state of mind,so Mr saraki who is in charge of Nigeria since our PMB is not in charge.

  5. Until our leaders rule us with God’s fear, Nigeria will not rise. Let us shun 419 and robbery. We children are begging because there’s no place to go

  6. Then whats the point of voting him again,our economy needs serious help and he is not the solution ,biko come and be going

  7. He can’t just blame the president, he also has his own portion of the blame because he is part of the ruling government

  8. A man that can’t read a newspaper without putting it upside down, a man that can’t make a sentence, a man who can’t defend himself in a debate is that one a president?

  9. This is just the truth and nothing but the truth. The reason that this nation is in jeopardy is because of this so called President.

  10. Do who is in charge. Nigeria with politics and different politicians. I pray for leaders not politicians. Gos bless Nigeria

  11. You have just cleared the air… Really his altitude towards the affairs of the nation is really affecting it negatively…. The thing that the head does is what other part will engage on….

  12. It’s only a matter of time. I believe this is just a phase. Perhaps Buhari’s stand on corruption might have chased away corrupt investors. But ‘im sure things will get better eventually.

  13. Na two unna sabi,,,,no b Nigeria we dey,,where u will b yelling us something on social media n we’ll b seeing u doing a contrary thing on oda platform

  14. This not a real man, a man that can’t make a sentence, a man who can’t defend himself in a debate.

  15. Saraki is not serious. The cause is the conspiracy beteween saraki and his fellows who made sure Nigeria does not move forward due to their selfish interest.

  16. I do not know whether Buhari is the cause of the bad economy or he came out the wrong time but what am sure of is that he did nothing about it, I don’t blame the investors no one wants to lose money

  19. But why are you just saying it now. Are you saying you didn’t know this when you became senate president under APC

  20. Who is talking here? Let’s see how it goes next Buhari regime without you in the government. Thank you.

  21. This is actually true and I concor to it. Saraki is absolutely right. The wife of Mr President even said it.

  22. When he claims nig to knw anything abt almost everything going on in his country, there is little he can do at his age sha

  23. Saraki is just stating the obvious, because everyone knows the passivity of our president.
    But why all these now? Is Saraki waking up or what.? Saraki should keep quiet because he is also one of Nigeria;s problem

  24. You’re the senate President and you in a better position to make it known to us who is in the saddle if not the president Buhari we know.

  25. it’s risky or not wise even, to invest in Nigeria. Hence, the shift of focus toward other countries like Ghana

  26. I think the person to be in charge should be the president,
    Then I don’t think it should be capable of being the president if Ghana is taking over

  27. Are you not one of those who set up the government in government? All this you are saying is simply because you are no longer in the ruling party and using this against them. We already know your political gimmicks
