Nigeria now relies on ‘war-torn’ Ukraine for food assistance – Obi bemoans economic hardship

Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s candidate in the 2023 presidential election, expressed his dismay at the prevailing economic difficulties, noting the troubling fact that Nigeria is now dependent on Ukraine, a country ravaged by war, for food aid.

Obi, who made this statement on Monday, recounted times when the Nigerian economy was faring better than that of Ukraine in 2015.

According to the former Anambra State governor, Ukraine’s GDP per capita was $2,125 in 2015 while that of Nigeria was $2,680.
