The Answer-ud-deen Youth Association of Nigeria (ADYAN) in the 19 northern states has urged President Muhamadu Buhari to use the recovered loot to cushion the hardship being experienced by Nigerians.

The Chairman of Northern states’ Executive Committee, Dr Basheer Omipidan, gave the advice while at a news conference in llorin.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the news conference was to herald the association’s 2016 conference, which will hold at Omuaran,  lrepodun Local Government Area of the state.

Omipidan urged the Buhari-led administration to listen to the yearnings of the people.

He said the injection of the looted funds into the economy will help address some of the challenges before the country.

“Let the money recovered thus far be pumped into the economy so that families can once again eat what they desire.

“We as Nigerians kept faith with his administration.

“ADYAN is, therefore, confident that the administration will reciprocate the gesture by ensuring we all smile again.” he said.

Omipidan advised Nigerians to imbibe the "change begins with me" culture, avoid wastage, be fair to all irrespective of their religion, culture or ethnic backgrounds.

He added that Nigerians should avoid sacrificing merit for mediocrity.

“If we do all these, Nigeria will be great again.” he said.
