In other developments, Anamekwe Nwabuoku, the acting Accountant General of the Federation (AGF),
has said that the government is in the midst of a severe financial crisis, revealing that Nigeria borrows
money to pay wages.
This was revealed by the acting AGF during a retreat held by the Office of the Accountant General of the
Federation for members of the Technical Sub-committee on Cash Management in Abuja on Tuesday (TSCM).
According to Nwabuoku, government spending is increasing as a result of increased security issues and populace social requirements.

This demonstrates that we are living in really tough times.
