Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari is upbeat about the latest development of the country’s economy after the National Bureau of Statistics posted on Tuesday figures which showed that the Nigerian economy grew at 0.55 per cent in the second quarter of 2017.
President Buhari has said that his administration will not rest until the impact of the current economic status is felt by all Nigerians.
President Buhari, however, said in a series of tweets on Tuesday that he was pleased with the news of the nation’s emergence from recession and promised to ensure that the impact was felt by all.
“I’m glad we’re starting to see the fruit of our work but there’s still a lot to be done. We will not rest until all Nigerians feel the impact,” he said.
“The real change for Nigerians is an impact that is felt in their lives and their pockets. We are on the right path, and our work continues. Until coming out of recession translates into a meaningful improvement in people’s lives, our work cannot be said to be done.”
