The National Bureau of Statistics had on Wednesday officially declared that Nigeria had entered into a long predicted recession after her economy contracted by 2.06 per cent in the second quarter.

Taking to her Twitter @Mrskemiadeosun, the minister said “The strongest of all warriors are these two, time and patience. I know people are concerned about the recession. Recession is a word”.

Her comment drew the ire of Nigerians on social media and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which asked Mrs. Adeosun to tender an unreserved apology to Nigerians for her insensitive comments.

“There are several other handles circulating on social media including Facebook”.
