Nigerians Disagree With Buhari On 'Most Prosperous Black Nation'

As the country prepares to celebrate its 60th independence anniversary, President Muhammadu Buhari has described Nigeria as the "most prosperous black nation" in the world and the largest economy in Africa. Buhari said this while unveiling the logo and theme for the country's 60th Independence celebrations. However, Buhari's comment attracted a backlash from some Nigerians who said on social media that corruption, unemployment, minimum wage, and poverty are some of the issues taking its toll on the nation.
