Nigeria

Excerpts

Senator Andy Ubah decried the call for sale of national assets, describing it as wrong.

“If we sell our assets now to recover from this recession, what would we sell in the future if we ever slipped into another recession?

“We must seek an alternative way of recovering from this recession but sale of our assets is not the way out,” Mr. Ubah said.

The Majority Whip, Olusola Adeyeye, insisted that the nation must be restructured along the line of true federalism.

According to him, the states cannot keep coming to the federal to collect money while ignoring available resources and potentials in their states.

“Many have asked that we must restructure and I agree that we must restructure.
