Comrade Issa Aremu has come out to say that Nigeria at 60 should work for all citizens, not some of us.

He recently revealed that there is a need for proper monetary and fiscal measures that will get rid of inequality income and opportunities in our nation.

According to him, it is very sad that Nigeria in 2020 is still more unequal than it was at independence in 1960.

He added that it is always very unfair to see the few rich getting richer while the several poor get poorer by the hour.

His words, “Yes as many as 100 million .. are living bellow poverty level, but we should also not forget that Nigeria is the home of few richest men and women of the world”.

“Nigeria parades 4 of the global billionaires. Yes you can also say Nigeria is indeed capital of prosperity for a tiny few”
