Economic Recession: 4 Yesterday's Men That Can Help Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari was voted massively because people believed that life can get better if corruption is eradicated from Nigeria. However, in place of a better life Nigerians are now suffering more than ever. It has become a norm to hear Nigerians say ''Bring back corruption and give me food''.


Nigerians are hungry and the cries for food are getting louder by the day. The poor masses are bearing the brunt of the recession that has hit the country. If the tides do not change soon enough, the masses may soon call for the blood of the ruling class. President Buhari needs to act fast if Nigeria must contain this economic recession, it is however sad that the President does not seem to have the required expertise in his cabinet.

Nigeria is blessed with talented and illustrious citizens who can help Buhari weather the storm. Some of Nigeria's best hands served during the last administration and can help Buhari save the country from recession. See list of 4 Yesterday's Men That Can Help Buhari :
