RECESSION IN CHRISTMAS: Tales of woes as Nigerians prepare for the big celebration



TWO days to Christmas celebrations, tales of woes and despair following the unending economic hardship in the land fills the air.

From Lagos to Ibadan, Enugu to Port-Harcourt, Abuja to Kano and Jos, the story is not different. Indeed, Nigerians are passing through hard times, and this is evident in their abysmal preparations for the Eyelid.

Unlike in the recent past, where excitement and early preparations took the centre stage, this year has witnessed little or no formal preparations for the Christmas celebration.

Saturday Vanguard investigation revealed that the excitement and joy that usually greets the Christmas celebration is no more, as many people are busy lamenting the prevailing high cost of living in the land. The situation has also been complicated by the return of long queues of vehicles at the petrol stations across the country.
