She stated that she has never been as afraid for the country as she is now because the economic situation is beyond terrible.
The mother of two decried the falling exchange rate, pointing out that it is destroying businesses. According to her, business has been so slow lately because of the increase in prices.
She noted that the average Nigerian can’t even afford a loaf of bread, and basic necessities have become luxuries because things are too expensive.
