Fix economy now or Nigerians will carry out revolution – Senator Shehu Sani warns Buhari
The senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani has warned President Muhammadu Buhari to fix the country or a revolution may break out as a result of the current economic hardship Nigerians are facing.
Speaking in Abuja at the weekend, Sani advised that to avert such problem, those in position of authority should properly handle the situation.
According to him, one of the ways the current administration can fight recession is to extend its anti-corruption war beyond the Jonathan administration, with the aim of recovering the nation’s stolen loots.
Sani said, “We are in recession, but the recession must be tackled headlong by the Federal Government and all stakeholders in the polity towards getting out of it very quickly or else, it may lead to revolution.
“The 2015 election supposed to have ushered us into a new hope of unity and progress. But there are a lot of mistakes that have been made in the last one year.
“One of the corrections is the need for us to look forward in terms of bringing our people to the Promised Land and not look backward on crises we faced in the past.”
Sani had in September ‘ warned the Buhari government to put short-term measures in place to cushion the effect of the current economic situation on Nigerians, or risk the people dying before the President completes his reforms.
