OYOGist.com has learned that the Minister of Finance for Nigeria, Hon. Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed Has said the mass population of the citizens in the country is too much a population for the Federal Government to control.
The Minister made this known in a press briefing in Abuja after announcing that the country may soon go into recession. Zainab said the country’s population is too large and beyond what the Federal Government can handle and control. Thus, she urged all Nigerians to begin to patronize made in Nigeria products in order to Significantly develop and boost the nation’s economy.
The Finance Minister said that COVID-19 pandemic has directly affected businesses across the nation because of the partial and total lock down imposed across the country, hence the administration is finding it hard to meet the needs of the entire nation.
However, great nations are known for taking decisive steps in hard times that has direct positive bearing on the masses regardless of their population. Hence in such a crucial time as this, making this kind of statement by a person in public office will do the nation no good; this is because Nigerians are counting on the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to creatively chart the course of this nation and navigate the masses to a safe harbour.
