The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain stated that it is time for politicians and the elite to make more sacrifices that will benefit the masses of the country.

His words:

“There is no better way to curb corruption than to effect fundamental restructuring in this country.
“Where subsidy has been removed, people are suffering, they can’t pay rent, they can’t pay tuition fees of their children, they cannot transport themselves, and then people in positions of power are living an opulent lifestyle. It means the sacrifice is one-sided.
“So, I think cutting the cost of governance is one. And secondly, the sacrifice should be in all sectors. You cannot increase tuition fees for children of poor people in public schools. There is the money to provide education for children of the poor.”
