Nige­ria Out Of Re­ces­sion, Not Nige­ri­ans, Says NCP

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - FRONT PAGE - By Eniola Daniel

THE Na­tional Con­science Party of Nige­ria (NCP), has scolded the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment for not do­ing enough to al­le­vi­ate the suf­fer­ings of the peo­ple through pro­vid­ing ba­sic needs in the face of eco­nomic hard­ship.

The La­gos State chair­man of the party, Fatai Ibuowo said the re­port by the Na­tional Bureau of Statis­tics (NBS) that Nige­ria is out of re­ces­sion is not ac­cepted by his party, be­cause the peo­ple are not feel­ing the im­pact of the exit.

He felt the in­for­ma­tion was meant to take off the pub­lic’s at­ten­tion from the gov­ern­ment’s lack of clear-cut idea on how to man­age the coun­try’s econ­omy and bet­ter the lives of the peo­ple.

Ibuowo said in­crease in crime rate should be a ma­jor con­cern and rea­son the gov­ern­ment should con­sider tack­ling the econ­omy woes.
