Kemi Adeosun attended the worst University in England – Reno Omokri

by on November 24, 2016
 
Former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri has taken a swipe at Nigeria Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun saying she attended the worst University,  giving this as one of the reasons why Nigeria is in a recession. 
Acording to Reno: In his words;

This table shows the best universities and the worst ones in England. University of East London, the school our pretty finance minister, Kemi Adeosun , attended is number one amongst the worst. This is a former polytechnic that only became a university in 1992. Now you know why you have a recession!

    Rejoinder to Reno Omokri’s Claim About Current Finance Minister
    Reno Omokri’s claim that the current Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, attended the worst University in England is preposterous. Firstly, the Table he presented to support his claim explicitly shows the percentage of graduates from some UK Universities in “professional jobs”. The Table did not show any other indexes, such as teaching quality, research quality, graduate prospects etcetera, as a measure of how good a UK University is. Using a meagre index to tell Nigerians “now you know why you have a recession” is not only an insult to Nigerians but deceitful, diabolical, repugnant and idiocy.

    Interestingly, Reno Omokri’s alma mater (University of Wolverhampton) was a former Polytechnic which became a University in 1992. University of Wolverhampton is ranked 71 out of some 127 Universities in the UK. Being a former presidential aide or some sort of a pastor is not a licence to criticize anything and everything. And been referred to as a “high-profile broadcaster” producing short films is NOT an automatic right to slate the Finance Minister or any other Minister.

    There is a cavernous misconception here, the Finance Minister is not responsible for the substantial part of the economic, i.e., trade and industry, revenue-generating activities, profitability. The principal role is more economics, i.e., the financial side of the national economy. In effect, the Finance Minister does not generate revenue or achieve sales turnover for the government. This may be complicated to understand but it neutralizes the executive position of a Finance Minister. The economic foundation of a nation is not built on individual personality or personalities; it is build up on a set of economic principles.

    To understand why Nigeria is in recession, one needs to comprehend the external and internal factors responsible for our current economic downward spiral. The complex nature and structure of the global economic environment ardently-protected by the West and their allies mean that the so-called third world countries are, directly or indirectly, servitude nations. In this context and so unfortunate, successive governments in Nigeria have strenuously pursue a mono-economic structure which leans heavily on crude oil. It is also a common fact that global factors, such as oil price volatility, terrorism (even militancy and pipeline vandalism), political uncertainty, social unrest, external trade policies, technology etc, are the main factors affecting the price of crude oil in the international market. Consequentially, the oil revenue of producing countries is in sharp decline. Within Nigeria, you have the Niger Delta militancy groups who have selfishly decided to engage in pipeline vandalism and kidnapping foreign oil workers at will, leading to a tumultuous crude oil environment. In addition, the notoriously-corrupt former government led by Goodluck Jonathan and other perpetual corrupt-minded persons who are only interested in self-aggrandizement precipitately led to the current economic recession facing Nigeria and Nigerians. All these factors are wholly outside the confine of the Finance Minister. Suffice to say that blaming the Finance Minister for the current recession is baseless and immature.

    Instead of encouraging or promoting perniciousness, Reno Omokri should concentrate on his pastoral enterprise and abstain from insulting Nigerians.
