Amidst the wavering naira and fuel scarcity in Nigeria, a former lawmaker, Shehu Sani, has advised Nigerians to focus on the upcoming election rather than carrying out any form of demonstration.
The senator, who represented Kaduna Central senatorial district in the 8th National Assembly, made this known via his Twitter page on Wednesday.
Recall that some irate Nigerian youths have in the past days and weeks been launching their anger at some Commercial banks and fuel stations in some states across the country. This consequently has heightened tensions ahead of the February 25th, 2023 general elections in Nigeria.
Thus, to contain the palpable situation, several concerned Nigerians have continued to air their views on the issues at stake.
Sani tweeted, “The general public must avoid any form of protest in d name of cash or fuel scarcity at this 11th hour. The southeast must defy the call to sit at home. Any spark is intended to lead to conflagration. Anti-democratic elements must be resisted. Let’s focus on the election. ”
