While speaking at a function in Abuja on Thursday, Shettima said that instead of Nigerians joining forces to salvage the economy, many were making a mockery of a situation that could cause more harm to the country.

He said: “It is not only disheartening and disenchanting but also heartbreaking that yesterday when the Naira culminated to N1500 to the Dollar, instead of us to coagulate into a single force and salvage our nation economy, sadly, some clowns are celebrating on Twitter of an impending implosion of the Nigerian economy.”
