Arewa Progressives slam Finance Minister over bad economic policies
The Arewa Progressives Assembly (APA) has cautioned the Finance Minister, Zainab Ahmed to “desist from introducing bad economic policies that are contrary to the Federal Government’s intended economic stabilization measures.”
The group in a statement on Friday, issued and signed by Musa Ibrahim Barnawa said there was no justification for the Minister’s “one-step-forward- two-steps-backward” policies being initiated so far.
According to the group: “We are watching everything that is going on in the finance ministry.
“We are not persuaded by the appearance of innocence she is giving because we know that beneath that facade is a Finance Minister running policies that counter the Federal Government’s general economic reform programmes,” the group stated.
“We advise her to stop this sabotage of Federal Government’s economic stabilization moves, or else we will petition President Muhammadu Buhari to take stern measures against her conduct, which amounts to backstabbing,” the group threatened.
