Shehu Sani, a former Nigerian lawmaker, has sent a message to President Bola Tinubu.
He urged Tinubu not to weaponise electricity supply against Niger Republic in handling the leadership crisis in the West African country.
According to Sani, the President should be careful not to be the new apprentice of French neo-Colonialism in the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, sub-region.
In a tweet on Sunday, the social critic is of the view that Nigeria shouldn’t be the vigilante of imperialism in West Africa.
He said that Nigeria should seize the moment and seek a new independent West Africa.
He wrote, “President Tinubu should not weaponise electricity supply to Niger Republic. Nigeria shouldn’t be the vigilante of imperialism in West Africa.
“The President should be careful not to be the new apprentice of French neo-Colonialism in our subregion.
“This is a moment we should seize for a new Independent West Africa; beginning with killing the CFA,Cedi and Naira and adopting a common West African Currency.”
