Nigerians have reacted to the forecast by London-based newspaper The Economist that opposition coalition may collapse before the election and give way for President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-emergence.
The renowned media outfit made the prediction in its latest edition “The World in 2019”.
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar leads the line of the opposition who have set their sights on ousting President Buhari in 2019.
While Atiku has said the forecast fails to meet the attributes of objectivity, balance and fairness, Nigerians are lending their voice to the matter on Twitter.
Those who don’t understand the first law of demand accuse Buhari of causing recession by not appointing ministers.
You will never see a learned economist accuse Buhari of being the cause of our recession.

“LMAO! APC won’t celebrate this because it comes with gloom. But the economist is right, if Buhari wins in 2019, we are in serious trouble. Very serious trouble, so just in case, get your visa now. Pray for the best (Buhari’s defeat #Amen), prepare for the worst,” @KBUdeogu tweeted

Buhari has the best of the best economists. Many things PMB did immediately he got to office to put the economy in good shape:
2 building infrastructure
3 make money available to small businesses,
4 States bail out and others.

In fact you have answered yourself.
Charlrs Soludo the CBN governor under your PDP in 2015 at the wake of election cried out that 30 trillions has withdrawn from treasury and that Nigeria economy is prime for reccession.
You do not need an economist to tell you Buhari is better
