Since the rich are united in exploiting our resources, the poor must unite to free themselves from poverty —Falana

A human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) has said that rich Nigerians “are united in exploiting our national resources”.

He therefore called on the poor Nigerians to equally unite to free themselves from the shackles of poverty.

According to Falana, the unity of Nigeria is based on the ruthless exploitation of the working people.

The human rights lawyer spoke at the 24th Convocation Lecture of the Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti on Wednesday.

“Unity means the component existence of Nigeria. The fact that the unity of the country is based on the ruthless exploitation of the working people, it is of no moment to the members of the ruling classes.

“For me, since the rich are united in exploiting our national resources, the exploited poor and oppressed people should equally unite to free themselves from the shackles of poverty,” he said.

Falana also called on the state governors to work on how to share powers with the President on matters of security and economy.
