She said that Nigeria needs no assistance from the IMF to address it economic problems, adding that the country has improved democratically since she visited four years ago. She also endorsed Nigeria’s efforts to tackle corruption, while saying the country needed to reduce its reliance on oil, sharp falls in the price of which have crippled its economy.
