I Share the hard times Nigerians are passing through – Sen. Shehu Sani


The Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone and Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign and Domestic Debts, Senator Shehu Sani has said that he shares the feelings of Nigerians for the hard times they are passing through at the moment, that the raw reality is that the people of this country are seriously hungry.
According to him, “change can only be change if truly it reflects the change that people can see, affirm and confirm to be true.
Senator Sani who made this known when he received group of pressmen who paid him sallah homage in Kaduna, went ahead to add that, “Nigerians are suffering, there is so much hunger in the land, states are unable to pay salaries making them  unable to settle bills, pay fees for their children and meet family needs.
“Anyone who says Nigerians are not suffering is only deceiving themselves‎” he emphasised.
According to the human right activist, “it is time to remind those of us in position of leadership to deliver on our campaign promises, because in as much as we call on Nigerians to exercise patience, we must not take their patience for granted.
“We must fundamentally restructure the economy that can address challenges of the 21st century, because if we don’t do it, we are likely to be swept away by Nigerians.
“Violence in the Niger De‎lta must be proactively addressed, there must be solution to oil dependent economy which must be number one, two and three priority of the present administration”.
He however called on Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari in his quest to reposition Nigeria, adding that challenges of the country require collective efforts‎.
In the same vein, he called for harmonious relationship between the executive arm of government and the legislative arm who all he said have the mandate of Nigerians to fulfil their 2015 campaign promises.
Senator Sani also averred that Nigeria needs a sustainable government and political ‎structure that can manage its resources effectively.
He also advocated that the 36 states should be reduced to 6 zones with FCT ‎as it’s capital, adding that, “no need for 36 federal permanent secretaries and Ministers, even the Senate and the Federal House of Representatives can be merged together instead of duplication of efforts” he said.
