  1. Mr President the economy is in bad shape that’s why you came up. So what’s the way forward. That’s all we need to know

  2. Is the economy ever in a good shape?, people have suffered more in this administration than any other administration, Nonsense

  3. I hope now that the President has realised that the economy is in bad shape, him and his cabinet will sit up and try to implement policies to improve the economy.

  4. I thank God he did not blame Jonathan government this time around. Your cabinet that took you six months to form, still the economy is still going down daily. We will vote you out period

  5. Thank God the president is beginning to see the true state of the nation. He had always apportioned blame to the past government. This is a welcome development.

  6. You hear them saying these all because election is coming, they are looking for polls,anyways God will have his way in this country

  10. Since I was a child, I have been hearing. When will Nigeria economy come out of bad shade. God help Nigeria.

  11. The economics has never improve since when Buhari came to power my advice is that all Nigeria citizens should tighten up their belt not only governor.the citizen should involve themselves in apprentice training and small scale business that can earn them a leaving.

  12. Buhari should know what to do and stop asking us to rethink while he travel outside the country, why won’t the economy be in bad shape when he is not around in the country

  13. The sole responsibility of the nations wellbeing is the president’s number one task, he said he was going to build the nation, so he shouldn’t fail us

  14. That’s why you are the president,since you have seen it, fix it without telling the whole world.if you are telling us,it shows that you cannot fix it.

  15. Mr President should have a rethink of coming out again for president. I think he should give way to someone else who knows the solutions to the economic downturn. Enough of complaining

  16. Since the time he sat there the economy has been in a bad shape and he is just realising it now u see if he finally acknowledges it means nigeria is in hot soup now. May God help us.

  17. That’s why you are the president. If you have seen it, then fixed it for the nation if can. But if you cannot, step down for someone that can do it for the nation.

  18. I think the president should think again and again for contesting for next year election..He should make way for fresh minds

  19. I think the president should have a second thought about the next year election..He should make way for fresh minds

  20. You guys should join head,shoulder to shoulder to rethink n make something better for Nigeria citizen.

  21. The economy is in bad shape is what we have known and be hearing for the past 3yrs now. A solution to putting it in a good shape is what we await to hear

  28. He knows him self that the economy is in a bad shape for years now… He as been ruling this country for 4 years now and the country is still in bad shape

  29. God should help us all we only depend on God all mighty for change in all this situation that is happening everyday

  30. That is the man promising us next Level, Next Level of more economic hardship, May God never allowe him to come back.
    He should readdress his economic policy.

  31. I hope now that the President has realised that the economy is in bad shape, him and his cabinet will sit up and try to implement policies to improve the economy.

  32. So Our Mr president even knows how bad the economy has been and there is no possible solution towards that. Well.. We hope for better 2019

  33. Like seriously….is telling the present governors who has few Months to go or the ones who are yet to be elected. After 4 years he just discovered that the economy is bad. Is quite unfortunate.

  34. I’m very surprised mr. President is just realizing this after almost 4 years in office . O dikwa real egwu

  35. I thought they said we are back from the days of recession. This minimum wage of a thing will not be possible with this APC government.

  36. Mr President!! Please tell us Sir what is the way forward oo…. cause you just seems to woke up from your slumber….so for your mind,you just realized that!!

  37. Ride on Mr President, I know you her doing your best and I believe that the meeting will bring out a good fruit. Keep it up

  38. Why won’t our economy be in a bad shape?? Since you mounted the Presidents seat everything changed automatically from good to bad, from bad to worse, so tell me how it should be in a good a shape after all the change and transformation that even affected the insects

  39. Recycling of English the economy was in recession

    What is the difference
    Nigerian politics

  40. We already know that before. All what we want is the solutions to it and make it snappy. Because, hunger dey kill person and money not circulates.

  41. Are you just seeing it now or what…. well we need way forward not backward.. make Nigeria a better contry

  42. Since the president has realized that the economy is bad, proper measures should be taken to revive the economy

  43. I agree with Mr President that the Economy is bad, so he and the Governors should do something positive about it

  44. Saibaba, you don’t need to tell us that we are in bad state of economy. Even before you arrived office. It was still fare compared to your regime.
    I could remembered then, you promise to pay 10k to every youth every month, later on, you called us Lazy youth. So, is that the Change you brought. Now, 4yrs is gone, you wanna go for another 4yrs again….
    Hmmm, I won’t say anything, may God intervene

  45. We already know that before. All what we want is the solutions to it and make it snappy. Because, hunger dey kill person and money not circulates.
    Are you just seeing it now or what…. well we need way forward not backward.. make Nigeria a better contry

  46. It is the way forward u all should be brain storming not just to talk n relax we all know the country is in a bad shape

  47. And who made the economy the way it is? How was the economy before you came on board? Please let’s call a spade a spade and not an agricultural tool.

  48. Our economy have been on a bad shape ever before now, thought you would have said ways to make our bad economy better.. Not reminding us.. We voted for you to make it better but it’s obvious you failed us completely..

  49. We all know the economy is in amoeba shape right now,as in no definite shape presently…..but what’s the plan???

  50. How come you just found out this now, are you just waking up, the economy is in bad shape and what are you doing to rectify it Mr President

  51. You promised us a turn around within the first year. Rather the change was a downward change. And here u are talking about a bad economic

  52. Mr president thank you for your observations, indeed the country is in bad shape, help us and reshape it in order

  53. I thought they don’t know because they are not feeling it as well. It’s one bitter truth and must be told.

  54. I think there is no need for saying it again because is now obvious that the economy is very bad not just bad, but I expect him the president with his cabals to bring up a solution for governors to emulate instead of advising them to tighten up their belt.

  55. Economy in bad shape. Yes we know, Paris fund was indiscrimately released.. To what end?
    Abeg if don’t know what to do for the past years in power, then retire and let those who knows fix the problem

  56. Why wont it be in a bad shape. When all we are doing is pursue corruption. Leaving shops to pursue criminals wont help.

  57. Let hi. Tell them the truth so that they can reduce tje amount of corruption in their rrspective state

  58. If its in bad shape why not do something…that’s the problems with Nigerian government …telling us craps so that we won’t expect much from them…is 4years already and he’s still saying this
