Atiku Abubakar has reacted to report by NBS that Nigeria is out of recession, in a statement on his twitter account, the Former Vice President said:
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 recognize that economic weakness at the bottom of the pyramid remains. Inflation is still high.
We must continue working hard to expand economic opportunity for all Nigerians.
When all Nigerians can eat 3 square meals, that’s when the real recession ends. We have work to do.
