The Labour Party (LP), while speaking on Nigeria’s economy, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s health was the only improvement in the country, and that Buhari himself meant to say exactly that when he said that the economy was improving.
Buahari noted the perceived improvement of the economy while receiving the brief from his economic team on Monday, but the party said the President was probably assessing his health, which was improving.
Speaking through its National Chairman, Alhaji Abdulkadir Salam, the party told newsmen that the state of the economy was bad and that the President did not do well to say things as they were.
In his words, “The President was probably speaking about his own health, which he thinks has improved, and not the Nigerian economy.
“The President is not in a position to say that the economy has improved. When last did he go out of the Villa and when last did he interact with the common man?”
“I’m sure he was not talking about the economy where the cost of living has skyrocketed, unemployment has reached unbearable level while inflation is also beyond what we can bear.
“So, help us tell him that he is wrong. He is not sure of the economy. He was speaking about his health and not the economy we are all seeing now,” Abdulkadir further said.
