In a series of tweets via his verified Twitter handle, Nigeria’s former Vice President Atiku Abubakar expressed his opinion on the celebration that arose over coming out of recession.
He said that Nigeria is not truly out of recession until every Nigerian can eat three square meals daily without much struggle.
He tweeted, “As a Nigerian, investor and employer of labour, the news of Nigeria’s official emergence from the recession is most welcome.
“The news is surely a boost for Nigeria – it tells investors, local and foreign, that our economy is worth investing in. “While we rejoice, it’s also important to recognise that economic weakness at the bottom of the pyramid remains.
“When all Nigerians can eat three square meals, that’s when the real recession ends.”
