Not only in Nigeria, before elections in most countries the competing rival candidates are usually upbeat about all the great things that they are going to do for the people, some to the extent of promising a new heaven on a new earth, in the absence of manna falling from the sky, all of which of course needs financing. Unfortunately, this dramatic drop in oil prices has come at the wrong time.
Since Muhammadu Buhari himself has some background in petroleum matters it's reasonable to be expecting some statements from him about how the Nigerian economy is supposed to deal with the drop in oil prices, oil the major export commodity that lubricates the Naija economy.
