I Can’t Tell When This Recession Will End – Finance Minister

The Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, has said she cannot predict when Nigeria will get out of the current economic recession. She, however, said that some of the efforts of the government to reflate the economy had started yielding results.

Speaking during an interview in Abuja, the minister said:

“I don’t want to predict when we will get out of recession. Let me tell you that we'll get into growth and that’s how you get out of recession, because of the stimulus that we are providing.

“And it may take longer than we would like, but we will definitely get out of it. We are already seeing some positive signs in agriculture and solid minerals; and with what we are trying to do with other sectors, I am very sure we will get out of it soon.”
