Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has noted that the state of the country’s economy is going through depression.
According to him, all states are currently battling with COVID-19 pandemic which he noted is a very difficult situation.
He made this known while addressing newsmen today, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“The economy is going to go into depression; there is nothing we can do about that; revenues have collapsed; yet you still have to invest in more public health facilities.
“Most of the leaders have to invest in treatment despite the condition and weighed to invest in security.”
El-Rufai said those in the leadership positions are facing hard times and further encouraged them to work in unity.
“This time is a very difficult time to be in a leadership position and that is why the people and the leaders must all work together and pray for God to end this Coronavirus pandemic.
“It is a major problem, but we are working together,” El-rufai added.
The Kaduna Governor, however, added that Nigeria will surely overcome as a resilient nation.
