“Nigeria Is Broke” – Atiku, PDP Presidential Candidate
According to PDP presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Nigeria has been insolvent since President Muhammadu Buhari took office in 2015.
Atiku said since the All Progressives Congress (APC) took office in 2015, the nation has been experiencing budget imbalances.
On Tuesday, September 13, 2022, the former vice president made this statement when outlining his economic goals for the nation at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce & Industry.
“Nigeria is broke. Nigeria under the APC-led government has consistently run on budget deficits since it came to power in 2015. These budget deficits are often above the 3% threshold permissible under the Fiscal Responsibility Law,” he said.
