In a recent interview with BBC Hausa, Chief Whip of the Senate, Ali Ndume, criticized President Bola Tinubu's administration, alleging that even some ministers cannot access him amidst the prevailing hardship in Nigeria.

Ndume highlighted the government's failure to address soaring living costs and food scarcity, emphasizing the urgent need for intervention to prevent a crisis akin to those in Niger Republic and South Sudan.
