Okonjo-Iweala reveals why she will not serve in Buhari’s government .

The former Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, while participating in an Aljazeera programme: The Stream, said: "One of the things you learn as you get wiser is to talk less as you grow older. I have spent my time contributing to the country.

It will be better to live those managing the economy to do what they know how to do. There can be solutions. I am not a typical politician. I went in as a technocrat. I think on the continent we have seen a period when the economy was doing well, in the last two years we have been experiencing challenges.

We need to focus on the basics which are macro-economics. You must get the fundamentals like having a stable exchange rate and having inflation under control. I served my country for seven years and it was a great honour. The second time was very tough but it is still an honour.

I am not the only person who is a repository of knowledge. There are other people who can equally try their hands in running the economy. I will advise young people not to wait for employment. They should create jobs to employ six people or more and observe the principle of federal character.
