Commenting on Friday evening on Channels Television’ s programme , Politics Today , Osita Chidoka , an adviser to the PDP National Chairman , Uche Secondus , said the creation of new ministries should not be tagged as an achievement .
Chidoka , a former Minister of Aviation , said , “I was surprised that the government released a list of 35 achievements this year because a year ago or two years ago , they released 64 achievements.
So , even by their quantum of achievements, the government has declined in productivity .
“ But when you look at the quality of the achievements , the GDP of this country has fallen from N 520 bn in 2018 to N 350 bn … So , everybody is poorer in this government . ”
“ On the economy , Nigeria ’ s debt has risen to about N 36 tn .
It has grown three times to what it was in 2015 .
It has grown from about N 12 tn , meaning that 90 per cent of our revenue is actually going into debt servicing .
So , I don’ t know how that can be seen as an achievement . ”
