According to The Vanguard, Adeosun disclosed this in her closing remarks at a two-day conference of National Council of Finance and Economic Development (NACOFED) in Abeokuta.

She said: “We are already getting out of recession because of the actions the Federal Government is taking, if you are in a problem, the day you start to step towards progression, you are already getting out of it.

“The government is investing more in capital than we have ever invested, we are sorting out infrastructures, we are stopping wastage and so the sign of recovery is already there.

“Agriculture and solid mineral are already starting to grow and so they are responding to our policy initiative and we are expected to continue in that direction. “Nigeria is getting out of the trouble that we have found ourselves, we are turning things around and I believe everybody is united and everybody that were here represented the 36 states,” she said.

Adeosun also urged all the State Commissioners for Finance, Accountant-General and all finance professionals to always take stock and also compute their own balance sheet, saying it would assist them before decisions were taken.

She explained that the move would allow the states to know their liabilities, strengths and ways to go about their finances in the future, adding that it would in no small measure helped the Federal Government.

“We need to take stock, one of the most important thing I want to encourage all to do is to compute your own balance sheet, what are your assets, what are your liability, know your position.

“What are those pension liability, contractors liabilities that are hidden, bring them out, compute them, know them, it is very important.

“One of those things we have realised in the Federal level is that if that had been done we would have probably made better decisions in the past.

“If you don’t have the data you can carry on spending as if all is well only for a problem to come out as it has done in our own case to affect us.

“I just want to charge everybody to quietly compute your balance sheet and know it so that you can make decisions that really have the full picture,” she said.

In a similar vein, Dr Williams Kumuyi has said that Nigeria would soon get out of its economic challenges.

Speaking in Abuja, on Wednesday, September 27, 2016, Kumuyi said the country would soon get back on its feet economically.

Nigeria is currently faced with serious economic recession with the government constantly informing that it is doing all within its powers to resolve the crisis.

“We all know that we are passing through a tunnel but by the Grace of God, we’re going to get to the light at the end of the tunnel…and very soon the Lord is going to give us a turn around and there is going to be a change in our nation,” Kumuyi reportedly prophesied at a religious event in the country’s capital city.

Daily Trust reports that the man of God warned against selling the nation’s assets saying this may not be the best solution.

He said God would soon solve the problems facing the country just as he urged residents of Abuja to draw closer to God to solve their individual needs.
