Acting President Osinbajo responds to nationwide anti- government protests


As Nigerians trooped out Monday to protest
against the federal government’s shoddy
handling of the economic crisis skyrocketing
prices of food items, the presidency said it
was not unaware of the hardships people
face daily..

Acting president Yemi Osinbajo said the
protesters’ pains were noted and that the
government would work towards re-
positioning the economy to ease them off.
“To those who are protesting, WE HEAR YOU
loud and clear,” he tweeted. “We hear you
loud and clear, those who are on the streets
protesting the economic situation and even
those who are not, but feel the pain of
economic hardship.”

“We hear you loud and clear. You deserve a
decent life and we are working night and day
to make life easier.”


To those who are protesting, WE HEAR
YOU loud and clear.

The protests championed by music star 2Face
lost a bit of momentum when the Afro-pop
singer pulled out, citing security concerns.
His decision to stay off today’s protest
divided opinions among Nigerians.

But his call to action had received
widespread popular support and several civil
society organisations vowed to carry on with
the protest.

Though the Lagos command of the Nigerian
police had warned against the
demonstrations because of possibility of
“breakdown of law and order with attendant
loss of lives and property,” it, however,
provided security for the protesters.
