Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi has predicted that the value of the Naira will rise in the next three to six months, saying things are getting better.
He spoke at a special prayer organised by the state for the nation and President Muhammadu Buhari at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Adamasingba, Ibadan.
As early as 9am, thousands of Muslims, and Christians gathered at the stadium for the inter-faith prayer tagged: “Prayer for the nation”. Security personnel were strategically positioned to maintain peace and orderliness.
To begin the event, Muslim and Christian bands engaged in praises and worship to “charge” the atmosphere.
Ajimobi said emerging economic indicators have shown that things are getting better in the country.
“Nigeria produce two million barrel per day and the price of oil has increased tremendously. I know for sure, the way things are going, within the next three to six months, things will begin to get better, but we need to work. Let’s join hands and make the country better,” he said
