Approach Zimbabwe for solution to inflation – Obasanjo tells Tinubu’s govt

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has suggested that the current administration in Nigeria should consider engaging with the government of Zimbabwe to address the current unprecedented level of inflation in the country.

The former military leader and a two-time President, spoke on Monday, March 4, at a youth leadership symposium as part of activities lined up for his 87th birthday.

He said Nigeria had Zimbabwe to learn from given Zimbabwe’s recent success in overcoming a similar challenge.

Obasanjo charged Nigerians remain strong in the face of the current situation of things, adding that the tough must get going when the time is rough and tough.

He also advised that citizens take the situation to God, maintaining that the economic hardship and hunger will not be permanent.

He said: “When the time is rough and tough, the tough must get problem is new and no problem will be permanent.

“Committing suicide is not the end of any problem, confront it and take it to God because he could do anything.

“When you have a problem look at those who have had this problem before and how they overcame it

“We have this problem of galloping inflation in the country now but do we have a country with such problems recently? Yes we do, Zimbabwe had this problem recently. Shouldn’t we ask them how they did it even if our approach will be different? Even if whatever we shall be doing will be different but we can ask questions to navigate our way out.”
