The former Minister of Finance in Nigeria, Okonjo-Iweala has sent a message to President Buhari warning that recession is around the corner and hard times are ahead of Nigeria.
She said in an interview on Channels Tv;
“What Nigerian government needs to do is to make the economy less dependent on these commodities and that is why for the longest time, restructure the economy so that you can also have other sources to create jobs for the people, other sources where you can tap revenues.”
” It is not just diversifying your economy but also diversifying your sources of revenue.
“This is what our country is going to look at now and start planning about how they are going to do better in the future”
“2020 spilling into 2021 is going to be a difficult year but I believe that if the world acts as one if countries do not retreat into nationalism, populism, we will all have the resources to deal with these issues and help countries that do not have enough.”
