The country experienced scarcity of essential commodities, and the citizens suffered severe hardship. God was with us and the country bounced back.

“Between 2016-2019 the whole world went through another economic recession. Nigeria also had her own share of the hardship, but we were fortunate we were able to get out of the recession in a few years.

“I believe the present socio-economic uncertainty which had sent shivers to all nooks and crannies of society would also be overcome by the grace of God. The Federal Government is doing its best to salvage the situation.
