He was commenting on Nigeria’s 2020 unemployment figures over the weekend on Channels Television’s ‘Sunday Politics’, Adesina said it is typical of Nigerians to focus on only the negatives and pay little attention to the positives.

According to the Q4 released by the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics (NBS), Nigeria’s unemployment rate hit 33.3 percent — the highest ever recorded.

He stressed on the many initiatives to get the country on track. According to him, emphasis must be on the positive side and it all depends on the side of the economy you’re looking at. He specifically mentioned how the country has steadily moved out of recession, even though it is not talked about in the media.
