Buhari’s Economic Team: Osinbajo is a lawyer but better than economists – Segun Oni


Segun Oni, Deputy national chairman (South) of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has dismissed criticism trailing the economic team of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo heads the team.

Oni, while reacting to comments that Nigeria entered recession because APC lacks experts to manage the economy, told Vanguard that “There are experts; there is an economic management team headed by the Vice President.”
“Yes he is a lawyer, but if there is anything this vice president cannot do about the economy, no other Vice President in the history of Nigeria would have made any attempt.”

Oni, a former governor of Ekiti State, said even economists were not better than Osinbajo.

“We should not quickly forget where people are coming from; yes, this is a lawyer, a professor of no mean rating, who has done a lot of consultancy work for the World Bank, the African Union (AU) and so on.

“Osinbajo has a team that he is heading, it is not a one man team. I know within there, the economic adviser, is a guy that all of us had known when we were at school as one of the best brains we can find on the terrain, which also had a good career in the foreign service.
“Look, things would work and I am confident things would work, but yes we are overwhelmed by the high expectations of people right now.

“It is normal, but if anybody says because we don’t have people to manage the economy, which team could have managed the economy as it is now better than we are doing? Is it the team that destroyed it? That brought it down?

“Nigerians don’t seem to also complain when they were buying dollars as if it was going out of fashion; the legal tender during electioneering and campaign was dollars.

“If you were eyeing other people’s currencies at that height, you were making useless your currency, how do you think you will make an overnight recovery? It is not easy. Yes, the situation is very bad, but we would get out of it.”

Oni recently stated that Nigerians would have been refugees by now, if Buhari had not emerged president of Nigeria.

Zimbabwean Church leader in s*x scandal as photos naked photos and sex acts with 33 girls is exposed

Church leader
A Zimbabwean church leader, Nyasha Light Nyatsungo is enmeshed in a sex scandal and might also be facing legal action, after his ex-girlfriend flooded social media with his nude photo.
It was gathered that the Nyatsungo allegedly sent a nude picture of his Cape Town based ex–side chick, Shingi Mavenge, to his other girlfriend only identified as Beula who later broadcasted it on social media.
According to H-Metro, in an apparent fit of rage, Mavenge posted a WhatsApp chat she had with Nyatsungo’s wife identified as Nyasha Nhahumbi as well as a group chat with some of her former lover’s concubines.
According to Mavenge, she has gotten information that Nyatsungo has at least 33 girlfriends and has ditched his wife of eight years.
She adds that Nyatsungo bedded a girl who was their neighbour as well.
Mavenge said that the church leader’s wife revealed that they even consulted their local pastor in Mutare who failed in his attempts to mend Nyatsungo’s ways.
According to H-Metro, Nyatsungo, a married father of two, has denied ever circulating the picture, labelling Mavenge as a bitter woman whom he just flirted with on Facebook and nothing more.
“This Nyasha guy must be stopped in his tracks. He is going to pay for all the damage that he has done to me. He was the only one who had that leaked picture and I am shocked why he would forward it to some other girl,” fumed Mavhenge who is working on taking legal action.
“I started dating this guy in 2015 and never knew he was married. He lied.”  fumed Mavenge yesterday.
“That guy is full of lies and at some point, we opened a group chat with his wife and some of his girlfriends. He normally targets single mothers” added Mavenge.
H-Metro was furnished with six other cellphone numbers of his girlfriend that include Fadzai, Mutsa, Essy, Juliana, Barbra among others. Mutsa confirmed she once had a relationship with Nyatsungo have since terminated it since she discovered he was married.
Mavenge confirmed they met once in Johannesburg when she had to fly from Cape Town to meet her man sometime in April.
“That night he didn’t even have money. I had to pay the R800 for the accommodation as he had no money. He wanted to have sex with me but I flatly refused. He even wanted it without protection and I said No. he looked terrible with clothes in a plastic shopping bag. I want to write a letter to Pastor Rex who is the head of (the church) in Harare so that this guy be stopped with his tricks and lies,” added Mavenge.
When contacted over the phone in Mutare Nyatsungo confirmed he knew Mavenge but never had a relationship with her.
“I know her and we once flirted on Facebook. We never had a relationship as she is alleging. I don’t know why she is bitter. I haven’t seen the nude pictures she is talking about but I heard about it from Beula. We live in a democratic country. She can go ahead and sue me if she feels her rights have been infringed upon. All the allegations she is making are false and I don’t know her motive in trying to tarnish my image,” said Nyatsungo.
He said he was still with his wife whose phone rang without response yesterday afternoon. Despite his denials, H-metro was furnished with pictures of Nyatsungo and Mavenge, the time they met in April.
