The former Governor of Ogun State Rauf Aregbesola, says Nigeria Ought to dedicate a day for weeping once in every month.
He said this at a symposium to mark the birthday party of a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos.
Speaking on Nigeria’s population and the revenue it generates, Aregbesola said:
“We don’t remember that we are poor here in Nigeria. If we have a deep thought, we ought to have a day of weeping every month.”
“If we don’t work harder to improve our fortunes, we would continue to be poor. In 2017, Brazil had a population of approximately 200 million people almost about what Nigeria had.
“That year, Brazil had a revenue of about $600 billion and a budget of $700 billion. Nigeria in that same year made $13 billion and a budget of $23 billion. Are the two countries equal?
