Fathia Balogun: Things are really hard
The economy right now, to be frank, is in a deplorable level. Things are really hard. As a result of this, crime rate is relatively high. Something needs to be done. We are in dire need of resurgence. Through these trying times, I beseech every Nigerian to be united. We need unity to overcome. We also need one another to make this nation great again.
To tell you the truth, I don’t know. I don’t see a future, I mean, I don’t even know. Nothing is working in the country now, a lot of people are jobless and crime is on the increase, I don’t see anything I can call a future.
All this is just for them to have a good time and enjoy themselves with our money.
