Plato, in one of his early philosophies, revealed the necessity and importance why a political office holder needs in-depth knowledge before occupying such position. He said, the knowledge obtained can help one in rational reasoning and decisive decision making. Since Buhari took over the mantle of presidential office, it has been one woe to another embarrassment. As uneducated as he (Buhari) appeared, he failed to acknowledge the importance of technocrats in the complex economy like Nigeria. At the state of the economy now, I think he deserves the help of Shamans to help him magically revive the economy because it has gone beyond his and cohorts' intellectual capability or better still, consult Dr Kanu for a way out. 
The first priests were religious magicians called shamans. Ancient and gathering people looked to shamans to help them survive. They believed shamans had the power to heal the sick. Shamans were thought to communicate with the spiritual world. They led rituals to make hunting expeditions successful, keep crops growing, and prevent disasters. Most magic tricks depend on a practice called misdirection. Misdirection happens when a magician fools the audience into looking the wrong way at crucial moments.
Nigeria's Gross Domestic Product, GDP, has hit its lowest level in 25 years, recent figures from the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, has revealed. The GDP report released by the NBS on Friday says the country’s economy has crashed to a 25-year low of -0.36 percent. NBS says Q1 GDP declined to -0.36 percent from 2.11 percent in Q4 2015 and 3.96 percent in Q1 2015. The last time the Nigeria economy grew below 1 percent was in 1999, a few months after the return of democracy in May, 1999. According to World Bank figures, the economy had a regression of -0.3 percent in 1995, and -0.6 percent in 1991. Yemi Kale, the statistician-general of the Federation, who unveiled the report added that the oil, industries, power and manufacturing sectors of the economy shrunk in the period under review.
Before this economic crunch, International Monetary Fund (IMF) Dr Nnamdi Kanu and other economic specialists have severally called the attention of Buhari on how to strengthen the economy but he refused all. Some borders on Currency devaluation, Economic diversification, paying less attention to corruption fight, less witch-hunting of opposition, touring to different countries and arrest of Nnamdi Kanu. Consequently, after autocratically approaching the economy, he has finally accepted to diversify the economy to agriculture, travel less and devalue currency but refuse to stop witch-hunting opposition party and enemies.  
If Buhari continues to hold on Biafra and Biafrans not to go home, the second quarter will be noticed at -00.00 GDP. The earlier he realises the power of Chukwuokike Abiama the better for recovery of Nigeria economy. Under Jonathan, the economy of Nigeria stood at number one Africa but has moved to the 15th position.
