While touching on other overwhelming national issues relating to the economy, she lamented that over 10.6 million Nigerian children were out of school.

 

Mrs. Iweala also listed other achievements of the current government in the last two years.

 

“Nigeria’s economy is growing by 7%. Our banks are strong, our stock market is strong. Our job now is to see how the banks can lend to individual real estate developers at lower interest rates.

 

“Nollywood with the aid of the President has single-handedly created direct jobs for unemployed youths.

 

“In the past two years, the government has built 68,100 social houses across the six geopolitical zones.
