Many Nigerians attribute the sufferings in the country to past Nigerian leaders. According to them, Nigeria would have been better if past leaders had explored her resources rather than exploit it.

A twitter user, @dapoprince said a prayer about citizens’ not continuing to visit the sins of past leaders on their children on twitter.

Reacting to the prayer, Gumsu Sani Abacha, one of the daughters of the former military president of Nigeria, Sani Abacha said amen.

Meanwhile, another daughter of the former president, Gumsu Fatima, in an Instagram post said that dealing with what Nigerians say about her family has not been easy.

However, she stated that she had grown a thick skin and learnt to live with it.

@dapoprince tweeted,

NIGERIA will be 57 next year, may we not continue to visit the sins of our past “perceived bad” leaders on their innocent” children.

Gumsu Sani Abacha tweeted,

@dapoprince my best retweet of 2016. Amin to your prayers. May Allah open special doors for you. Happy New Year.

She wrote,

Amin to his prayers. It definitely has not been easy dealing with this for almost two decades. Our family has been called all sorts of names… We have been under so much attack. It definitely doesn’t feel nice.. I used to cry so much at the begining… I had no choice but to develop crocodile skin. It still hurts so much even though i have learned to live with it…. I was not the head of state.. I did not receive a monthly salary neither did I choose to be Fatima Gumsu Sani Abacha. ………
May Almighty Allah make it easy for us all. Happy 2017 in advance.
