Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to initiate new strategic approach to save Nigeria’s economy.

The traditional leader made the call on Tuesday during the 2022 edition of Grandmothers’ Festival in Epe.

He warned that dependence on borrowings would make Nigeria a perpetual debtor and cause problems for future generations.

“Nigeria’s economy is dwindling; in a state of comatose. Nothing is working. There is an urgent need for the Federal Government to salvage the economic doldrum.

“Nigeria has been surviving on foreign loans and the economic hardship is hitting hard on ordinary citizens.

“The recent scarcity and increase in the prices of the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) can only make things worse.”

Domestic operators listed high cost of jet A1 fuel, forex scarcity, double digit inflation, increase in ground handling charges, cost of buying and spare parts as the causes.

Adams said the increment came when more people are avoiding road travels due to insecurity.

“Apart from the aviation sector, other sectors of the Nigerian economy are suffering.
