Ex-aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to billionaire, Bill Gates critique of policies being applied by the Buhari administration in handling Nigeria’s economy.
Bill Gates made headlines in Nigeria when he commented on the country’s economic policies at an expanded national economic council, saying that the President’s economic recovery growth plan(ERGP) does not reflect the true needs of the Nigerian people.
“The Nigerian government’s economic recovery and growth plan identify investing in our people as one of three strategic objectives. But the execution priorities don’t fully reflect people’s needs, prioritizing physical capital over human capital,” Gates had said.
In reaction, FFK wrote on twitter;
“You invited Bill Gates to your Economic Council meeting and he told you the bitter truth and that things are not working the way they should.
When your guest tells you the bitter truth you better sit up and listen. Gates needs nothing from you and he has no reason to lie. You are a disaster.”
