Shehu Sani, who is a Nigerian senator, an author, playwright, and a human rights activist, has taken to his official Facebook handle to reveal that if the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC), lose over N19 million daily for service suspension, adding that it is better to lose such amount of money than losing human lives. He also stated that money can be recovered if lost, but not human lives.
While sharing on his official Facebook handle, the President of the Civil Rights Congress of Nigeria, Shehu Sani said, "They said NRC will lose N19 million daily for service suspension. It's better to lose money than human lives. You can recover lost money, but not human lives. Sensors, mine sweepers, and helicopter patrol service are needed to protect the rail lines, and the passengers at this stage. Anything short of this is a dangerous gamble".

This particular statement made by Shehu Sani has attracted a lot of attention as many Nigerians took to the comment box to share their thoughts. The majority is of the view that Shehu Sani was right when he said it's better to lose money than human lives, and I want to use this opportunity to urge the federal government to ensure that the lives and properties of the citizens are well protected.
