Charles Soludo replies Okonjo-Iweala, says Nigeria’s economy collapsed under her watch

After several replies on the controversial articles written by the Former CBN Governor Charles Soludo, Charles has decided to reply Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala on her own reply to his article. Very long articles, so take your time:
I read some of the responses to my article, “Buhari vs Jonathan: Beyond the Election”, and I want to thank everyone who has contributed to the debate. I am glad that the debate has finally taken off. I have decided, for the record, to re-enter the debate if only to set some records straight and hopefully elevate the debate further. Whom do I respond to? First, let me thank Gov Kayode Fayemi for his very mature and professional response on behalf of the APC. It forms a great basis for deepening the conversation. Pat Utomi, Oby Ezekwesili, Iyabo Obasanjo, and thousands of other patriotic Nigerians have raised the content of the debate. Femi Fani-Kayode made me laugh, as usual.
