From Minna To Suleja, Protest Rocks Niger State Over Hardship

Two days after protesters took over the streets of Minna, Niger State capital, lamenting the rising cost of living, another set of protesters have hit the streets of Suleja, still in Niger.

Many workers in the FCT live in Suleja as it is just a few kilometres from Abuja.

The protesters called on the President Bola Tinubu to take actions to reduce the hardship they were going trhough.

They displayed placards with inscriptions such as “Tinubu, Do Something Now!”; “Leadership Is All About Improving Lives”; “Nigerians Are Suffering”; “Stop The Hardship Now”, among others.

A group of women had blocked the Minna-Bida Road at the popular Kpakungu roundabout to express their grievances over the rising cost of food items.

People travelling to major cities in the South such as Lagos, Ibadan, among others, were held hostage for hours due to the protest, which started as early as 7am.

The women were later joined by men and youths who accuse governments of turning deaf ears to their plights.

The Niger State police had announced the arrest of the initiator of the Minna protest, Aisha Jibrin.
