The Presidency has claimed that Nigerians are enjoying the lowest living costs in Africa, following the soaring rate of inflation.
The Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, who made the assertions on Sunday, a statement he titled ‘Atiku Abubakar and his new hobby, said the administration of President Bola Tinubu was focused on “solving Nigeria’s economic and security challenges.
Onanuga admitted that Tinubu’s reforms would cause “immediate pains, but will usher in an era of prosperity in the medium and long terms.”
His response followed accusations from the Peoples Democratic Party 2023 presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, who said Tinubu’s economic policies were dashing hopes, creating pain, and causing despair among Nigerians.
Onanuga said the former Vice President “should be honest enough to admit that President Tinubu inherited a weak economy,” which, to all intents and purposes…needs a complete overhaul.
