Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has said that inflation is still very high in the country that Nigerians cannot eat three square meals.
He said this while responding to a report by the NBS that the nation has exited recession.
In a series of tweets on Wednesday, Atiku said although the news was a good one, inflation was still high.
He wrote, “As a Nigerian, investor and employer of labour, the news of Nigeria’s official emergence from the recession is most welcome.
“The news is surely a boost for Nigeria — it tells investors, local and foreign, that our economy is worth investing in.
“While we rejoice, it’s also important to recognise that economic weakness at the bottom of the pyramid remains. Inflation is still high.
“We must continue working hard to expand economic opportunity for all Nigerians.
“When all Nigerians can eat three square meals, that’s when the real recession ends. We have work to do.”
