The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has said Nigerians should be thankful to President Muhammadu Buhari for fixing the economy.
Punch reports that Ngige said this on Sunday while speaking to journalists in Onitsha, Anambra State.
Nigerians should be clapping for the present administration, he said, for making strides in both the economy and security of the nation.
God has used Buhari and “some of us” to make Nigeria work, he added.
Don’t just talk about that. We are wonderful with the economy; nobody, I mean no person would have done better than this present government in those two areas.
I want you to take something away and that thing is that any other person handling this situation; economy, security, it would have been worse.
We came in and oil nosedived to $37 a barrel with a production of 600,000 barrels per day, a drop from 2.2 million and yet we managed the economy out of recession.
Nigerians should be clapping for us on a daily basis, and after thanking God, they should thank us. Yes, because God has used Buhari and some of us to make Nigeria work.
