Economic recession: Test for Buhari’s administration

Dr. Baware
 George, said the ongoing economic recession 
is a veritable avenue for the Buhari administration to prove its worth.

National President, Union of Nigeria Baptist Convention, Dr. Baware
 George, has said the ongoing economic recession 
is a veritable avenue for the Buhari administration to prove its worth.

He told the administration to stop blaming the
opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for its failure, saying governance is about problem-solving and the current parlous economic
situation will be a measure to gauge Buhari’s competence.

In a public lecture entitled: ‘Effective Leadership In A Depressed Economy,’ Baware said the APC should quickly wean itself of the
euphoria of 2015 presidential elections and contrive ways to solve the country’s economic crisis for history to record it on the
positive side.

At the event held in Ado Ekiti at the weekend, Baware faulted the social security scheme of the Federal Government on
the premise that it was just running without a credible data, saying: 
“There is need to gather very good data system of the people, which
would be the strategy towards achieving the social goal.”

Urging Buhari to take proactive steps before situations get messier, 
Baware said: “What a depressed economy needs is a leader with
exceptional skills, who would need to step up his skills, raise the
bar with deployment of skills. Strong and effective leaders are
identified in time of crisis.

“Nigeria is going through some leadership challenges because we don’t
know the country’s core values. We can’t situate our
visions and core values, but we depend on the views of a leader at a
time. We don’t have a shared vision. A leader should be able to inculcate leadership values in the
followers, ensures that he fulfils his promises, and not play to impress
people. Today, Nigerians don’t take their leaders serious because they
don’t trust them.”
