A former member of the Senate, Shehu Sani, has said that Nigerians would face more hardship in 2020 and beyond under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Sani, who represented Kaduna East Senatorial district in the 8th Assembly under the ruling party, noted that even if the present government is given additional 50 years to rule Nigeria, the masses will suffer for those 50 years.
The former senator stated this while featuring in a Hausa Language programme, titled ‘Kai kadai gayya’, on Sunday.
“Nigerians are suffering and because the people in government have asked them to persevere.
“But the truth of the matter is that none of the leaders’ children are suffering, none of their wives are suffering.
“Their children school abroad, their wives go on holiday abroad.
“It is possible some of the distant relations are suffering because some people don’t take care of their relatives.
“So, it is disturbing to note that, some sections of the masses are deceiving themselves by thinking that the leaders love them and the leaders are also suffering like themselves.
“They are not suffering, their families are not suffering. But some masses are killing themselves because of leaders who don’t care for them,” Sani stated.
