Yinka Davies, popular entertainer has added her voice to the economic situation of the country.
According to her, economic situation in the country which has been labeled recession is something that has bedeviled the nation for years.
She noted in a chat with Vanguard that ‘recession’ was just an appellation that has been ‘falsely’ used to describe the current deplorable state of the nation.
She said: “Recession is an understatement! What is recession? Do you look like there is recession? Is it written on your forehead? Why give name to something that does not exist? What exactly is the impact that is felt that has not been felt before, that you people are making noise over spilled milk that has been spilled long before now?
“There is nothing much more intense that has not been more intense before! This is happening now because we are still not asking the right questions. They give it a name and Nigerians just jump at the name, why jump at a name that is already in existence? Nigeria has been going through hell forever, this is just another phase.
She added that: “The question is who are we as a people? Where have we been? When community was taking care of everybody, did you see riots on the streets? Did people not take care of their children and that of other people? Are they still not doing the things they have been doing even when they say all sorts of nonsense are going on? So what are you talking about?”
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has told the President Muhammadu Buhari led federal government that Nigerians can no longer afford one good meal.
NLC said this is as a result of lack of good governance which had led to non payment of salaries and pensions across states.
