Atiku Abubakar, a former Vice President of Nigeria has reacted to the news of the country making it out of economic recession saying until every Nigerian can afford three square meal, it is not yet time for celebration.
Atiku said this in a series of tweets via his verified Twitter handle.
He had 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. 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.”
