Recession Can Only End When Nigerians Begin to Eat Well – Atiku

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has said that recession in Nigeria will come to an end only when average Nigerians begin to eat three square meals daily. He said news report that Nigeria is officially out of recession is positive but more work is needed to make things better.

Atiku said this in a series of tweets via his verified Twitter handle:
“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. Inflation is still high.

“We must continue working hard to expand economic opportunity for all Nigerians.

“When all Nigerians can eat three square meals, that’s when the real recession ends. We have work to do.”
