By; SANI ALIYU, Zaria
A traditional title holder in Zazzau Emirate, Alhaji Muhammad Sani Sha’aban Dan Buran Zazzau has expressed fears of the economic future of Nigeria going by the worldwide COVID -19 pandemic
Sha’aban was speaking to journalists in Zaria on the current economic meltdown that Nigeria and world nations are facing as a result of the effect of CoronaVirus.
He said, Nigeria and other African countries must sit and strategize their economic plans for their future if really they want to jump out of the chain of economic slavery the world superpowers are planning against Africans.
The traditional title holder also pointed out that unless Nigerian leaders change style of leadership by encouraging farming, minerals exploration will save the nation, but failure to that, Nigeria will one day find itself in an economic slavery by the Western nations.
Alhaji Sani Sha’aban said that with the vast virgin land in Africa, Nigeria in particular, coupled with human and mineral resources in abundance yet Africans go to the superpowers begging for loans or grants to support their economy which is too dangerous to a nation like Nigeria.
“God has blessed Nigeria in all angles of human, minerals resources, that we can be a help to the Western nations, not even to only Africans but with the loss of focused leaders, we are now in confusion.
“It is time for Nigeriaun to know their fate on whom to lead them when it comes to election of representatives but sentiments, envy hatred should be thrown aside for Nigeria to survive form the silent economic attack by the superpower nations on our very rich economies,” he advised.
Sha’aban who was one time, a gubernatorial candidate in Kaduna State further warned Nigerians not to be deceived by the propaganda of improved economy on paper while in reality is not so.
He said Nigerian leaders at all levels should tell Nigerians the whole true situation of the economy instead of hiding under the books without anything to show as improved economy in the country.
