The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has urged the Federal Government to proffer a solution to the economic crisis, adding that there is poverty in the land.

Ekweremadu also told the government to release cash to boost spending, which will in turn, stimulate the economy.

He however disagreed with the call by his boss, Bukola Saraki for the government to sell some national assets to raise money.

The Deputy Senate President said contracts should be awarded to contractors so they can create more jobs, adding that “If we must sell at all, let it be the non-performing assets.”

Ekweremadu said “The last recess accorded us enough time to interact with our constituents and I regret to tell you that there is poverty in the land; prices of commodities have increased; people are loosing their jobs and some are dying of hardships.

“The government should release much money into circulation and contractors should be mobilized to sites to allow cash flow and creation of more jobs.”

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, also called on the Federal Government to focus on ending the hunger in the land.
