He advised the president to stop deceiving Nigerians that the nation had no money even as the federal and state governments continue to enjoy boost in their monthly allocations.

Mairiga urged the federal government to urgently open all the closed borders with other countries to allow food into the country.

He expressed concerns that if urgent steps were not taken to address the present situation in the country, Nigerians would soon begin to die of hunger on the streets.
