As AFCON ends, Shehu Sani says its time face economic hardship

A former legislator and social critic, Senator Shehu Sani, has said Nigerians should now be concerned with the rising food inflation and cost of living ravaging the nation.

The statement followed the defeat of the Super Eagles of Nigeria on Sunday by the Ivorian national team in the final match of the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

“AFCON Cup gone, we can now face Cup of Garri,” Sani wrote on his X handle on Monday.

TMY Newspapers reports that the International Monetary Fund, IMF, has fired a warning that Nigeria is facing a deepening economic crisis.

It disclosed this in a recently published report titled ‘Review of Nigeria’s Post Financing Assessment’ by the IMF Executive Board.

IMF expressed worry that the stagnant per-capita growth, widespread poverty, and severe food insecurity have further intensified the persistent cost-of-living crisis in Nigeria.
