Power Cut Will Push Niger To Resent You – Shehu Sani Carpets President Tinubu

A former Kaduna Central lawmaker, Shehu Sani has berated the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), under the leadership of President Bola Tinubu, for cutting the power supply to the Niger Republic.

Sani insisted that the move would lead to Nigeriens living their lives without depending on external forces.

Naija News recalls that Nigeria reportedly cut the power supply to the Niger Republic as one of the sanctions from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) over the coup in the country.

According to reports, power outages in Niger have been more frequent than it was in previous times as power only stayed on for about an hour at a period for residents of the cities of Niamey, Maradi, and Zinder.

Reacting to the development via Twitter on Friday, Sani highlighted the implication of Nigeria halting power supply to its northern neighbour.

He wrote, “Cutting off electricity supplies to Niger Republic is affecting their hospitals, Schools, homes and offices.

“This is not putting pressure on the military junta but punishing the masses of that country and creating resentment against our country.

“The action taken by Nigeria and Ecowas is further pushing Nigeriens to rally round their Military Government. France, Ecowas & Nigeria are pushing them to learn to live without dependence.”
