Aisha Yesufu, co-converner of BringBackOurGirls, BBOG, advocacy group has lamented that Nigeria’s economy is “getting progressively worse.”
Yesufu made the remark while faulting claims of those saying the economy is working.
In a tweet, she wrote: “All those who say economy is working please can I send some of the request I get from people to you?
“Honestly I am tired and weighed down by the flood of requests. I can’t cope anymore.
“It’s getting progressively worse. Am I the only one feeling this way?”
This is coming at a time when the International Monetary Fund, IMF, said more Nigerians had gotten poorer under the President Muhammadu Buhari government despite the country’s slow recovery from recession.
In a report, the IMF said Nigeria needs urgent economic reforms. It identified risks to growth, including additional delays to implementing policies and reforms ahead of the 2019 elections, security tensions, and oil prices, as part of the challenges facing the country.
