NIGERIA’S economy will be boosted within the next four months if the words of the authorities are anything to go by.
The country’s Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, said on Monday that Nigeria would exit the current recession by the first quarter of 2021.
Ahmed made the prediction at the ongoing 26th Nigerian Economic Summit organised by the Nigerian Economic Summit Group and the Ministry of Finance, Budget, and National Planning.
“Nigeria is not alone in this, but I will say that Nigeria has outperformed all of these economies in terms of the record of a negative growth,” Ahmed said.
At the same summit, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo emphasized that the government is committed to working in synergy with the private sector to foster equitable growth and underpin national development.
