Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has opposed the suggestions to sell Nigeria’s national assets as part of the means of moving the country out of economic depression.
Ekweremadu expressed his opposition against the suggestion of business mogul, Aliko Dangote, and the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki on Wednesday when he led other senators at a plenary to reject the call for the sale of the country’s national assets.
The senators at the plenary also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to reshuffle his cabinet as part of measures to take Nigeria out of the current economic woes.
The advice against the sale of assets come barely 24 hours after Saraki urged the Federal Government to consider the partial sale of some key national assets like the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Holdings to raise needed foreign currency to revive the economy and stabilise the naira.
He also suggested that some airports should be privatised or put up for concession.
