Twitter NG Shares #MyRecessionAdjustmentIdeas | BNers in Nigeria What are Yours?



It’s stale news that Nigeria is currently in recession. Due to the ever rising inflation rate and the consequent rise in the price of goods and services, individuals and families have adopted ways to lessen the effects of the current economic crisis.

Today on Twitter, former Minister of Education and former Vice President of World Bank’s Africa Desk, Oby Ezekwesili asked her followers to share how they have been coping in the current economic situation.


The replies were both funny and revealing. See them below:

    Potable water, light and affordable fresh food is basic human rights in other parts of the world. After dem go say home is best. That they like living in Nigeria because they walk around as first class citizen.

      But you lot are living large in Yankee now.

      I really don’t see the need to start comparing yourself or your life. If life was good. You won’t even think of comparing. People are living large in Naija, people are living large in Yankee (even if they’re smaller) People are hustling in Naija. People are hustling in yankee.
