By Ike Abonyi and Senator Iroegbu
The Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari has condemned in strong terms Nigeria’s over reliance on oil and its apparent lack of foresight to develop other sources of revenue, which he said are in abundant in the country.
Yari in a recent interview with THISDAY raised alarm that the easy money that is being generated by the sale of crude oil has made the nation, especially the policy makers, 'lazy rent-seekers'.
He lambasted the Federal and state governments, and planners of the Nigerian economy for not thinking outside the oil revenue, which he warned is not sustainable.
