NAIRA SCARCITY: Sultan of Sokoto Laments, says “Nigerians are Hungry”


The Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, has lamented the protracted crisis over the naira redesign, saying it had caused hunger and anger in Nigeria.

According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari should address the problem to prevent an uprising.

He said this in Abuja at a two-day conference by the Kano State government on livestock reforms and mitigation of associated conflicts on Monday, February 13 2023.

He said there was increasing tension caused by the CBN monetary policy, adding that urgent steps should be taken to stem the crisis.

The Sultan said, “Let’s keep politics aside. The issues of development, especially for the common man, (should be prioritized). 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.”
