Sani, in a tweet on Sunday morning, said the revelation by Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, that the Federal Government printed extra N60 billion in March to share among states puts Nigeria in the same light as Uganda under the late brute.
Obaseki had made the disclosure at a stakeholders’ engagement of the state transition committee last Thursday.
“Nigeria has changed. The economy of Nigeria is not the same again whether we like it or not. Since the civil war, we have been managing, saying money is not our problem as long as we are pumping crude oil everyday.
“When we got FAAC for March, the federal government printed additional N50-N60 billion to top-up for us to share,” Obaseki had said.
Reacting, Sani wrote: “Obaseki’s disclosure of Printing and Sharing cast us in the light of Idi Amin’s Uganda.”

He was considered as one of the most brutal despots in world history.
