The founder of Anakle Limited, one of the leading digital tech companies in Nigeria, Editi Effiong has attacked Tolu Ogunlesi, the special assistant on Digital/New Media to President Muhammadu Buhari over his comment on the rate of unemployment, that Imo, Akwa Ibom and Rivers State are among Nigeria's richest states that are benefiting from the oil derivation revenues that should give advantage.
Tolu Ogunlesi who was reacting to the story released by the Premium Times, where the online news outlet reported that those three states are amongst Nigeria's worst cases when it comes to the amount of unemployment in the economy, also said poverty rate in the aforementioned states have for many years been consistent amongst the highest in Nigeria.
While reacting to Tolu Ogunlesi's comment, Editi Effiong, who himself is from Akwa Ibom State, one of the mentioned unemployment and poverty hotbed in Nigeria, could not understand how posting the extract changes what he believes is a fact that the special assistant is serving in the government he described has the worst economic record in Nigerian history.
