As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, a Nigerian man who returned from the United Kingdom has lamented the state of the economy, saying he has not found it easy since he returned to the country.
The man who spoke with Legit TV said he had lived in the United Kingdom for eight years but felt the need to come back home to see his family and start life afresh.
According to him, he is into oil and gas but the money he realises from it has not been encouraging.
He complained about job, electricity and governance in the country, adding that the government has not done enough to cushion the effect of the coronavirus lockdown in the country.
According to him, the federal government should credit the account of every Nigerian with N30,000.
