Hardship: ‘We’re battling to make Nigerians sleep with closed eyes’

The Senate President, Senator Godswill Akpabio says President Bola Tinubu-led government is battling to cushion the effects of hunger and ensure Nigerians sleep with their eyes closed.

Akpabio said this during Sunday thanksgiving service by Senator Barinada Mpigi in Koroma, Tai Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The Senate President stated that the Tinubu’s government seems confused on what to charge the suspended Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele for messing up Nigeria’s economy.

TheNewspad recalls that on January 18, the federal government amended the criminal charges files against the suspended apex Bank Governor.

“But what we can is that yes there is hunger today because of the policies and actions that they took, and we recognise that.
“And I think every political party should recognise that there is hunger, and we are battling to ensure that Nigerians sleep with their eyes closed”, Akpabio said.

Continuing Senator Akpabio assured Nigerians that President Bola Tinubu administration is making efforts to end insecurity and ensure that Nigerians feed well.

The former Akwa Ibom State governor urged Nigerian to be patient as the rot over 60 years cannot be solved in six months.

According to him, “The kind of debt and economic mess that we are in, a lot of people will not understand but I remember President Obama saying that you cannot know Washington until you get to Washington.

“So, by the time we went in to look at the economic situation of the Country, it was terrible. You know that the former governor of the Central Bank, we did not even know what to charge him with.

“Whether to charge him for putting foam on top of the bill or to charge him for illegal possession of firearm or to charge him for printing notes without income, I don’t know what we are going to charge him with”, Akpabio said.
