Presidential aide, Mr Doyin Okupe has said Nigeria is not America so the people do not need brand new trains, in an interview with Adeola Fayehun of Sahara TV.
Okupe said Nigeria cannot have brand new trains because our economy cannot support it.
“Forget it. We are not America. You cannot have brand new trains because the economy cannot support that.”he said.
Asked why Nigeria economy cannot support the purchase of brand new trains since we have been quoted as the largest economy in Africa, Dr Okupe only said; “We are the largest market. We are the largest economy” and the video fades out.
