Former lawmaker and social critic, Senator Shehu Sani has reacted to the loss suffered by the Super Eagles on Sunday in the 2023 AFCON Final.

Reacting on Monday, he said Nigerians should now be concerned with the rising food inflation and cost of living ravaging the nation.

The statement followed the defeat of the Super Eagles of Nigeria on Sunday by the Ivorian national team in the final match of the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

“AFCON Cup gone, we can now face Cup of Garri,” Sani wrote on his X handle.

Recall that the International Monetary Fund, IMF, has warned that Nigeria is experiencing a deepening economic crisis.

It stated this in a recently published report titled ‘Review of Nigeria’s Post Financing Assessment’ by the IMF Executive Board.

IMF expressed concern that the stagnant per-capita growth, widespread poverty, and severe food insecurity have further intensified the persistent cost-of-living crisis in Nigeria.
