He said the increasing pressures being mounted on the federal government by “the parasitic faction of the ruling class to auction the remaining assets of the nation” made the investigation timely.
Femi Falana’s comments followed calls by businessman, Aliko Dangote, and the senate president, Bukola Saraki, for the government to sell national asset to stem recession. Meanwhile, former president, Nigerian Bar Association, (NBA) Dr. Olisa Agbakoba has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari against rushing to sell-off some of the country’s national assets.
Speaking on the backdrop of recent calls by some eminent Nigerians who advocated for the sale of the country’s national assets as a way of reviving the nation’s ailing economy, Agbakoba said Buhari needs to do two things before selling-off some of the nation’s assets. According to Vanguard, the legal luminary on Friday, September 23 said before embarking on the sale of the assets, the first thing the government needed to do is take an “ inventory of financial requirements – how much money do we need?”
