Nigeria's recession may last for 20 years - Jimoh Ibrahim

Ondo governorship aspirant, Jimoh Ibrahim, on Thursday warned that Nigeria may still be recession after 20 years, if the price of oil continues to fall at the international market.

Mr. Ibrahim said this at the launch of the book, Worshipper In the Temple of Justice, organised in honour of emeritus professor of law, David Ijalaye, at the Oduduwa Hall of the Obafemi Awolowo University.

“With the current crude oil prices and current situation of the country, except there is a miracle that will chance the situation, we may be experiencing this recession for 20 years,” he said.

“Our Naira has lost its value and this is the worst recession I have seen in many years and nothing seems to be happening.”

Mr. Ibrahim advised that Nigeria adopts the Iran economic model in order to make a remarkable development.

Addressing the issue on the recent arrest of judges by the State Security Services (SSS), Ibrahim said it may affect the confidence of the investors.

“In a case where a judge is found with over N54 million and that it was found under his bed, no one would want to do business with you,” he said.

“It is very bad and has got so bad, if the Judiciary cannot be trusted so what are we saying.”
