As controversy still rages on the selling of Nigeria national assets to boost the revenue base of the nation, a human rights activist and Executive Chairman, Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ) , Comrade Adeniyi, Alimi Sulaiman, has warned the President Muhammadu

Buhari-led Federal Government against selling the National Assets because of its attendant consequences on the generality of the people in the nearest future, saying that the action would further complicate the economic problem of the nation, and may have negative effect on the
social security of the land.
He also warned President Buhari not to listen to those who were calling  for the selling of National Assets to funds 2016 Budget which it would wind up in a couple of three months , advising Buhari not to turn  his government to prodigal administration like his predecessors in office.
Comrade Sulaiman, however  stated  that those who were canvassing for the sale of our national Assets and wealth, were looking for way to acquire Nigeria properties through the backdoor by legal means, alleging that majority of them were part of those who caused the economic woes of  the country.
The group in a statement, urged Buhari to look beyond the present occurrence in solving the economic recession facing the country, by offering shares of those National
Assets to revive all the moribund industries like Steel Roiling Mills, Ajaokuta Steel Roiling Mills, Nigeria Machine Tools and a host of others which it would generate employment to the teeming youth that were losing their jobs as a result of present economy doldrums.
CHRSJ boss tasked Nigerians, particularly, the Labour unions and Civil Societies Organizations (CSOs) in the country, not to pay lip service to this issue of national interest, if the Federal Government remains adamant on this anti-masses agenda, by rolling out the drum of
national peaceful protests across the States of the Federation on October 1st, 2016 to be code named 'Anti-Sales of National Assets Protest'.
The rights activist urged Buhari’s government to wake up from slumber and fine-tune another strategy to bring the country out of the present recession by looking inward instead of selling the national birth right of Nigeria masses to a few individuals, reiterating that the Federal Government should use the funds being collected by the anti-graft agencies to fund the 2016 budget as no court would expect the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to bring cash  of billions of naira collected  before it  as exhibit, than the documents to proof its matter beyond reasonable doubt.
