Sultan of Sokoto urges President Buhari to address Naira scarcity to prevent social unrest
During a two-day conference held by the Kano State government on livestock reforms and mitigation of associated conflicts, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, spoke out about the issue of Naira scarcity, which has sparked controversy across the country. The Monarch appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to address the issue promptly to prevent a possible uprising, as the scarcity has led to widespread hunger and anger among the people.
The Sultan’s statement highlights the growing concern among Nigerians about the country’s economic challenges and the urgent need for government intervention to mitigate the impact on the population. The scarcity of Naira has made it increasingly difficult for people to access basic necessities, and the resulting frustration and anger among the citizens are alarming. It is essential that the government takes immediate action to address the situation and ensure the well-being of the people.
Let’s keep politics aside. The issues of development, especially for the common man, (should be prioritised).
These people that God Almighty gave leadership over, one day, God forbid, will rise (against us).
After all the English by professors (at the conference), how do we get these developments down to the common man who is a farmer, the common Fulani man who doesn?t know anything about development? He only cares about cattle.
The people are hungry, is there money? People are angry and hungry. Let’s see how we can douse the tension.
