Senator representing Ebonyi South Senatorial District in the National Assembly under the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC, Anthony Ani, has said that economic saboteurs operating in the country are the cause of its economic woes over the years.

This is even as he expressed optimism that, if given the chance and requisite support by Nigerians, President Bola Tinubu would fix the economy to the benefit of the citizenry.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja, Senator Ani, wondered why some Nigerians are into economic sabotage against successive governments, and therefore encouraged citizens to support the present administration under the leadership of President Tinubu, stressing that he meant well for the country.

According to him, the President had adopted some economic measures, which have the potency to rejuvenate the country’s ailing economy, and make it productive and attractive, so that foreign investors could come and invest in Nigeria.

He said: “As far as I know, a lot of economic measures are being applied but some individuals in their different ways are trying to sabotage the government. Good enough, just recently, the President set up a tripartite Committee that will handle it.

“We have experts in this land. We have people who are very knowledgeable on how to manage the economy. The situation could be arrested if the number of the economic saboteurs is reduced.

“The present administration, under President Bola Tinubu, is doing its best to see that the economy is improved, that the welfare of the people is improved upon but I don’t know what some people derive from sabotaging the government because it is sabotage that is causing all these problems.

“I am appealing to Nigerians to be patient with the government and support President Tinubu in his efforts to change the country’s worrisome economic trend and pathetic narrative, to a positive tale of economic boom and prosperity among the citizenry. This is very possible with the cooperation and collaboration of all stakeholders in the great Project, Nigeria.”

The lawmaker also observed that the government agencies responsible for enforcement of government laws and policies, to ensure implementation and to rid the system of saboteurs were doing their best, noting however, that the number of saboteurs was overwhelming.
