People Inflating Unemployment Statistics To Discredit Buhar’s Govt. – Bello

Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello has said that the rising unemployment figure as provided by the National Bureau of Statics will need to be scrutinised.

He added that, since people are inflating the figures to discredit the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Bello who spoke on Channels Television programme on Tuesday said that the government of the All Progressives  Congress  (APC) in six years out performed that the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 16 years. 

He opined that the figures since 2023 general elections is around the corner, since people would like to latch on that to discredit he ruling party under the leadership of Buhari, stressing that very soon all the outstanding performances of the present administration would be put together for Nigrians to see.

Faulting the statistics from NBS on the unemployment level, the governor said, “We should subject the numbers to scrutiny. How credible are some of these figures? Figures from the National Bureau of statistics should be queried. What are the parameters used to arrive at those figures? Generally let me say that 2023 as we all know is around the corner  and some people are engineering some of these numbers in other to discredit the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, and for whatever reason, I don’t know.  

According to him; “There are some numbers reported of Kogi State which I have in front of me, which are completely at variance with what is been published. Let me also tell you that the challenges that we are facing today in this country is not just local.”

“Talking about the figures from the World Poverty Clock,  which tagged Nigeria as the world poverty capital, Bello said that the report is not correct. “Who are those that came to the country to assess the figures? Where are the places that they visited? I will query the figures as well”.
