Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, the Spiritual head of INRI Spiritual Evangelical Church, has stated that the only way to end recession in Nigeria is to appoint an Igbo indigene to manage the economy.
He advocated that the head of Nigeria’s Economic Team and the Minister of Finance should be an Igbo.
Primate Ayodele warned that failure to do this would see the country go in circles.
The cleric, who insisted that Nigeria was not being managed by the right set of people, said recession was a situation that must be dealt with seriously.
He said: “The CBN governor, like I said before now, has to be removed because he is not the solution to Nigeria’s economic woes.
“All the members constituting the country’s economic team have to be removed if this administration wants to show us that they are serious about getting us out of recession.
“An Igbo man should head the economic team and recession will come to an end.
“Even the minister of Finance should be removed and those who understand what the economic situation is all about should be made to occupy the position.”
He added that the Nigerian government should do away with dollar and form an alliance with the Chinese “and let us see what will happen to our economy.”
