“We Can’t Cope Again” Under Tinubu – Protests Spread To Osun State Over Economic Hardship

Nigerians in Osun State have taken to the streets to protest against the economic hardship inflicted by the President Bola Tinubu-led Nigerian government.

The protesters, mostly youths, wielded placards with inscriptions such as “change the unfavourable policies”, “Nigerians are suffering, we can’t cope again”, and “We are humans, stop mistreating the citizens”, among others.

They assembled along MDS Road, Osogbo, decrying the rising cost of living and calling on the government to immediately intervene.

Addressing the protesters, the chairman of Osun Civil Societies Coalition, Mr. Waheed Lawal, said the protest would continue until the Federal Government finds solutions to the current economic hardship ravaging the country.

He urged the government to provide security for the life and property of the citizens, adding that every government that fails to provide security for the lives of the citizens is no longer a government.

This protest is coming on the heels of a similar protest in Kogi State, where market women and men protested the ever-increasing prices of essential commodities and how it has affected patronage of their businesses.

There was also a fresh round of protests in Suleja, Niger State, where angry Nigerians called on the Tinubu-led government to end the hardship and unbearable inflation they were suffering.
