While speaking at the senate debate on the Economy during plenary yesterday September 22nd, the senator said war against corruption has put fear in the minds of Nigerians that want to invest in a business that might attract the attention of the antigraft agency.
“If you look at Nigeria today, nobody is buying land, nobody is buying houses. Rent is actually is coming down. The economy has shut down. The reason why this is happening is because of Fear. Everybody is afraid. You cannot run a 21st century economy where everybody is terrified. Everybody is afraid of being arrested. As long as you have fear in the system, you will not invest your money in that economy” he said
