It will take Jesus, Allah and Benin native doctors to fix Nigeria – Ric Hassani

Nigerian R&B singer, Ikechukwu Eric Ahiauzu, better known as Ric Hassani said that it will take interventions from Jesus and Allah to fix the country.

The ‘Gentleman’ crooner made the statement in a recent interview with The Cable.

Speaking on the way out for Nigeria, the musician opined that the problems facing the country have been allowed to linger on for so long that they’re no more independent of the people.

“I don’t know, honestly. The thing is that Nigeria’s problems have been around so long that it’s now inside the people. We can’t remove it. They’re no longer independent of the people and the country.

You can’t separate them anymore. How do we fix this? It’s going to take a long time and miracles. It’ll take Jesus, Allah, and native doctors from Benin. It’ll take a lot to fix it. I don’t have any answer at all. Just stream my album,” he said.

Hassani also detailed his encounter with robbers disguised as soldiers along Freedom Way, Lekki.

The 32-year-old said;

“It was a very stupid situation. I didn’t want to talk about it before. It (insecurity) is limiting lots of things, not just showbiz. It’s bad, bro, only that we’ve become used to it. You can’t walk down the streets.

I don’t know how we can change that. Even those who go around robbing people, the country isn’t probably favouring them. Nigeria is at this level where fixing it would demand more than just protests. It will take a lot.”
