Nigerians may all die before getting to the Promise Land ~ Sen. Shehu Sani tells Buhari
Senator Shehu Sani, the Chairman, Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Debts, has warned the president, Muhammadu Buhari and the Federal Government, of the height of hunger and hardship befalling every citizen of Nigeria under his (Buhari's) administration, lamenting that continuing this way might cause a total disaster.

“If you keep reforming and reforming and the people are suffering and dying, you may reach the Promised Land alone because by that time everyone has died. Of what use would that be?”
Further in the interview, the Senator called the attention of the president to his popularity status among Nigerians which he said was dropping by the day. He noted that the support Nigerians gave him during the elections is now a shadow of itself.
“The second stage will be, ‘We are advising you’. The third stage will be, ‘We are cautioning you’. At the fourth stage, Nigerians will say, ‘We are warning you’. The fifth stage will be, ‘We doubt you’. The sixth stage, it will be, ‘You are incompetent’. The seventh stage will be, ‘You should go’.
“When you study these stages, you will see that we have moved behind 100 per cent support to “advise”. And with letters flying and criticisms following, it is about “cautioning”. And I think the handwritings are on the wall for everybody to see.”
