People Democratic Party, PDP Senator representing Bayelsa East and Chairman, Silverbird Group, Ben Murray-Bruce via his Twitter handle yesterday said that Nigeria will definitely go into recession in 2016.
Its certain that Nigeria will go into recession in 2016, but rather than fix the situation we are all more concerned about who is to blame.

Some Nigerians did agree with him but a lot more questioned what the government is doing to make the yoke of the common Nigerian lighter rather than continuously play the blame game.
