The personal assistant to the president on social media, Lauretta Onochie has said Nigeria is gradually pulling through the hard times. According to her, President Muhammadu Buhari and his economic team must be doing to right things for the economy of the nation and the world is taking notice of it.
On her Facebook page, she wrote: “Only last week, World Economics Boldly stepped forward with the great news that the Nigerian economy would experience the highest growth in Africa in 2017.”
She said it was a confirmation that Buhari and his team are leading the country in the right path. “There’s no time in our recent history, not even during oil boom, has over one trillion Naira been invested in capital projects in one budget year! Only under President Buhari in the 2016 budget year!” she noted. The presidential aide added that things can only get better and in due time, the people will get the Nigeria of their dreams.
PLUSMILA.com gathered that this year, Nigeria will experience more good news than bad when it comes to global growth. A report published on Bloomberg last week indicated that 62 economies are slated for an improvement compared with last year.
Nigeria was number four on the list which is thanks to a rebound in the price of oil from a 13-year low in January 2016. At the top of the list is Venezueka followed by Argentina and Brazil.
The Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, recently disclosed that N1 trillion was released for capital projects in 2016. She described the achievement as the highest ever budgetary release in Nigeria’s annual funding for capital projects.
