Nigeria economy in “Troubled Times” — Gov. Okowa

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State on Friday tacitly supported the position of Edo governor, Godwin Obaseki, on the state of the nation’s economy.

The governor, who said the rising insecurity in the country was fueling the sharp downturn of the economy, said the country’s economy was in trouble.

Recall that Obaseki and the Federal Government have been in each other’s throats after the Edo governor claimed that the nation’s economy was in bad shape, adding that the government printed N60bn to augment last federal allocation to states.

Obaseki also sort the diversification of the economy from over reliance on crude oil to immediately address the calamity that is to befall the country in the years ahead.

But Okowa, who seems to be taking sides with his Edo counterpart, declared that Nigeria’s economy is “in troubled times.”

The Delta governor raised the alarm on Friday at the funeral service of late Mrs. Comfort Nwagimeje at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Agbor.

The governor, while described the nation’s situation as one only God can address, urged Nigerians to pray for a change in the current situation.

Okowa particularly painted a worrisome situation, positing that many people are hungry and can no longer feed themselves because they can’t farm the way they used to due to growing insecurity.

“Pray for our nation because we are in troubled times; the country is insecure and our state is not left out because whatever affects the country affects the states.

“We are in troubled times because many people are hungry and can’t feed themselves, but we have hope that God will take control and change things for the better.

“Our economy has dwindled and insecurity is further worsening it; we can no longer farm as we used to but we are hopeful that God is able to turn things around for the nation,” Okowa said.
