Ex-minister of aviation, Femi Fani Kayode says President Muhammadu Buhari and members of his cabinet are responsible for Nigeria's recession.
The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) recently released a disturbing report saying over 4.8 million Nigerians lost their job under the President Buhari administration.
The NBS disclosed that 2.6 million Nigerians became unemployed within the first and second quarter of 2016.
In a reaction, Fani-Kayode tweeted: "According to the Nig. Bureau of Statistics 4.8 million Nigerians have lost their jobs since Buhari became President. Still love Mai Chanji?
"Our country is now officially in recession. That is what Muhammadu Buhari and his cheerleaders have done to us. May God forgive them.
"Nig. is now officially in a recession. Sadly most of Muhammadu Buhari's little cheerleaders on the social media don't even know what the word means.
"Those that say that "recession is just a word" are daft and insensitive. Those that say it with a low class cockney accent are an affliction.
