Okonjo-Iweala Descends To More Name Calling In Response To Soludo

Posted in: , , ,

I was among those who were energized by reading Soludo's article on the failing Nigerian economy, here. It may not have been 100% accurate, but it worked with facts and figures, mostly eschewed ad-hominems, and slammed both Buhari and GEJ for their faults in their ongoing campaigns to be president. As the incumbent, GEJ obviously had more of the blame, but that is only as it should be. He is the one with a lot to prove and lose at the same time.

Unfortunately, his defenders have not towed the same line towed by Soludo but have mostly descended to name calling because of Soludo's previous political ambitions. Fami Kayode was the first to dash off a meaningless response that did worse damage on GEJ than Soludo's article.
