Former Kaduna Senator, Shehu Sani, has accused the World Bank of being insensitive and irresponsible in its advice to the Nigerian government to raise taxes and withdraw subsidies on petrol.

He said that the World Bank’s recommendations were aimed at imposing more hardship on Nigerians who are already suffering from poverty and insecurity.

Sani made his remarks in a statement issued on Friday. He said that the World Bank had alerted about poverty levels rising to 104 million out of a population of 223 million, as a result of the rise in the cost of living brought about by the economic reforms.
