“My concern is for the average Nigerian who is faced with an increased potential of a poverty trap and high cost of living crisis daily. I think Nigeria needs to act right now because we are in a state of emergency in terms of thinking through unstructured bases, not policy based solutions only. Policies will only pass the problem but won’t deal with the problem. We should look for a more collective approach to fixing the problem.”
