In a recent interview with CNBC, she said the following about Nigeria's economic situation and the president's plans:

1. Revenues

Speaking on revenues, Kemi Adeosun said Nigeria’s challenge is not the burden of debt, because our debt to GDP ratio is at a relatively low level of 13%.

She explained that Nigeria's problem is instead low revenues. Therefore the federal government has plans to increase revenue generation.

They plan to do this by: borrowing as cheaply as possible, strengthening our tax collection system and borrowing from external markets.
