Director of Strategic Communications of President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 campaign organisation, Festus Keyamo (SAN), says Nigeria is the best-performing economy in Africa.
The senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN) made this comment on Monday while speaking on Sunrise Daily, a talk show on Channels Television.
Making comments on the state of the economy, Keyamo said: “I need to remind Nigerians about the GDP growth. Of the 11 countries that went into recession around the world, Nigeria has exceeded all of them in terms of GDP growth”.
“None of them has crossed 1.4 to 1.5 percent, Nigeria is doing close to two percent GDP growth right now. Let us get that one clear,” he said.
“Forbes Africa has rated Nigeria as the best-performing economy in Africa. The results came out two-three weeks ago, we are the best-performing economy in Africa,” he added.
