NBS Report: Lawan Says Nigeria Not Doing Badly by Benjaminnx(m): 11:02pm On Aug 27, 2020
President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, on Thursday reacted to the National Bureau of Statistics’ second quarter 2020 Gross Domestic Product estimates which was published on Monday, saying Nigeria isn't doing badly.The NBS had disclosed that the nation’s GDP declined by –6.10% (year-on-year) in real terms within the second quarter of 2020, ending the three-year trend of low but consistently improving positive real growth rates recorded since the 2016/17 recession.
