The protesting market women in Lagos on Saturday.
Protests against hunger, hike in prices of goods, services as well as unfavourable policies of the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led APC government, may have become the order of the day as some market women in Lagos on Saturday staged a protest against the rising cost of living in the country.
During the protest in the Ibeju-Lekki axis of Lagos, the women carried placards with such inscriptions as “Baba Tinubu, Nigerians are hungry”, and ‘Tinubu, come and rescue us”, among others.
Over the past few days, some Nigerians have taken to the streets in protest in Osun, Niger, and Kano States over the rising cost of living in the country.
Since the removal of the petrol subsidy in May 2023, prices of commodities in the country have been going up.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) had blamed the opposition parties for instigating protests to undermine the administration of Bola Tinubu.
