Helen Grant: Despite Recession, Nigeria Is The Fastest Growing Economy In Africa by AnonPoet: 11:18pm On Nov 21
The United Kingdom Trade Envoy to Nigeria, Helen Grant, on Saturday said that Nigeria was the fastest growing economy in Africa.

Ms Grant said this at the two-day Nigerian Diaspora Investment Summit (NDIS) organised by Nigerian in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), in collaboration with Nigeria Diaspora Summit Initiative (NDSI).

The activity, which is the third edition, began on November 20 and will end on Saturday.

It has the theme: “Post-COVID-19 Economic Resurgence: Targeting Diaspora Investment”.

A News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent covering the activity quotes Ms Grant as saying that it will strengthen UK, Nigeria relations.

PREMIUM TIMES on Saturday reported how Nigeria entered its second economic recession in five years, also its worst economic decline in four decades.

But the UK official appeared optimistic of the nation’s prospects.

She said that her government was ready to educate, and also learn from, Nigeria by enhancing the bilateral trade between both countries.

She added that UK and Nigeria had so much that unite them, especially in the areas of culture and language, and stressed the need to build on such existing relations to bring about economic growth.

Kudos to the Government of Nigeria and our great people for striving harder even in the face of adversity.

A good news for patriotic Nigerian citizens is a bad news for enemies of this country.

The British influence in Nigerias politics needs to be curtailed! They have taken enough! They are imposing leaders and setting up agendas that are impoverishing the Nigerian people! This is Nigeria, the biggest concentration of black people anywhere in the world. Britain should respect that heritage and give us some space. Their imperialistic actions are mainly the reason why Nigeria is bedeviled with bad leadership while loosing billions to multinational oil companies. This kind of warped analysis are done to provide cover for inept pro British politicians in Abuja. We are not their political guinea pigs! They should stop experimenting with our lives. Britain should stop imposing dead woods on us as presidents..

More like: "Nigerians be happy with ur suffering; ur level of suffering is the best inAfrica." The kind of poo you can tell a monkey.
How is this good news?

U're in recession; and a white woman knowing how unintelligent u can be, is telling u that u're "growing," and as expected, it is good news to you.

Would she be bold enough to tell her countrymen this same nonsense if they were in recession?

Think man, it ain't illegal!

You're Nigeria's greatest enemy if you're happy with its current economic situation.

Nigeria is in a huge financial mess. Nothing seems to be working anymore.

This same Britain that profits from any bad leadership in Nigeria.
But what kind of economic analysis is this if not deceitful. I didn't know that recession has such advantages

That means we should all embrace the recession with our two hands and recommend it to other countries including Britain so that they can grow. Mtchew

Britain never wants Nigeria to grow.
They are still the same people telling us through their BBC that there was no death at the lekki toll gate

But wait ooo, how come things are very expensive and there is high unemployment if really we are growing according to Britain.

Pls let Britain stop strengthning ties with us.
We don't want.
With all the ties from 1914 till now we are still a shithole and even getting worst
