A former presidential adviser on National Assembly Matters, Florence Ita-Giwa, on Tuesday refused to comment on the state of the economy under the All Progressives Congress-led federal government.
Mama Bakassi, as fondly called, at a function in Lagos was asked to rate President Muhammadu Buhari’s one year in power.
Ita-Giwa, who represented Cross River South at the Senate from 1999-2003, declined to provide a direct answer to our correspondent’s question.
She, however, stated that it was only prayers that was best for Nigeria, not “unnecessary rating of office holders”.
“If you are asking me to rate President Buhari, no comment,” Ita-Giwa said.
“But if you want my opinion on current happenings in the economy, I would call on Nigerians to always support and pray for our leaders.
“I know we have been praying but we should continue to offer prayers. With plenty prayers, the fortune of our great country will turn around for good”, she added.
