EAC: I Was Asked To Reject Buhari’s Appointment ‘Because There’s No Money’ – Soludo

Chukwuma Soludo, former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has disclosed how one of his friends asked him to reject the appointment into the economic advisory council. President Muhammadu Buhari unveiled an 8-man economic council on September 16. Some economic experts had commended the president for the decision, saying it is capable of yielding fruits.

But speaking at The Platform, an annual conference organised by Covenant Christian Centre in Lagos, on Tuesday, Soludo faulted the thought pattern of some Nigerians.

“When I was named a member of the Economic Advisory Council, a friend called me, spoke in Igbo: ‘leave their job for them’, I asked why, he said ‘but there’s no money there now, just a Committee… that’s how we reason in Nigeria,” he said.

The economist said the constitution is not sustainable and cannot carry Nigeria and its citizens for long. Soludo further likened Nigeria’s current reality to the “foundation of an old bungalow”, saying the country needs to among other things change its economic institutions.
