Senator Shehu Sani, who represents Kaduna Central district in the National Assembly, has warned the Government of President Muhammadu Buhari, against deceiving Nigerians.
The Senator said the figure released by the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, showed that unemployment and poverty were on the rise, wondering why government officials were telling Nigerians that job and wealth creation were on the upward surge.
The lawmaker noted that the reality was that Nigerians were poorer now with many youths out of job, adding that the falsification should stop.
He tweeted, “The recent figures on job loses coming from the NBS contradicts the claims consistently made by Government officials on the surge in job creation or wealth creation.
“The reality now is that unemployment and poverty are on the rise.
“Enough of this disinformation and falsification.” he added.
