Senate Leader, Opeyemi Bamidele yesterday said the Federal Government will, as from next year, go after economic saboteurs who have made life difficult and unbearable for Nigerians.

Bamidele who expressed concern about the high level of economic sabotage, said those involved are doing everything to keep the exchange rates high against the naira or trying to make the nation’s currency unavailable to bank customers.

He added: “The Federal Government will charge, prosecute and punish them for their acts of economic sabotage. All these will take place next year.

“In the long run, those who mopped up the naira and dollars from the markets will face the consequences of their actions. Those who mopped up the dollars to keep commodity prices high will definitely not escape justice.

“Those who are speculating are also on the watch list of the Federal Government. At some points, the Federal Government will have to go after them.”

Bamidele assured Nigerians that despite the efforts of saboteurs to stifle the economy, the nation would witness a true era of Renewed Hope in the coming year.

The Senate Leader said there would be development, progress and prosperity, citing diverse plans by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration to transform the economy.

He noted that the Federal Government was plannig “to invest heavily in agriculture and agro-allied industries”.

“We are equally doing all we can to harness our solid minerals potential as much as what we derive from the sale of crude oil. We are determined to sustain the daily production of 1.7 million barrels.”
