(News investigators) Despite evidence to the contrary, outgoing President Muhammadu Buhari insists he is leaving Nigeria in a better situation than he met it.
President Buhari said this in his farewell address to Nigerians on Sunday morning.
“I am confident that I am leaving office with Nigeria better in 2023 than in 2015.”
Contrary to Mr Buhari’s claim, however, most economic indicators show that the country is worse off now than it was when Mr Buhari was sworn in in 2015.
Inflation, unemployment, poverty rate and GDP per capita are some of the indicators that got worse under Mr Buhari.
