The lawmaker representing Kaduna Central district, Senator Shehu Sani, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari’s government against deceiving Nigerians.
The lawmaker said the figure released by the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, showed that unemployment and poverty were on the rise, wondering why government officials were telling Nigerians that job and wealth creation were on the upward surge.
He noted that the reality was that Nigerians were poorer now with many youths out of job, adding that the falsification should stop.
Senator Sani tweeted, “The recent figures on job loses coming from the NBS contradicts the claims consistently made by Government officials on the surge in job creation or wealth creation.
“The reality now is that unemployment and poverty are on the rise.
“Enough of this continuous fraud, disinformation and falsification.”
