Protest In Minna A Call To Address Poverty In Nigeria -Shehu Sani

Human Rights Activist, Senator Shehu Sani has stated that the protest in Minna, Niger State against the high cost of living falls within the ambit of the right to peaceful dissent.

Senator Sani who posted this on his X handle on Monday, noted that the protest was simply a message and a call for immediate and impactful measures to address the problems of the epidemic of poverty in the country.

He said, the protest is not peculiar to Nigeria alone, adding that the protest against the cost of living was also done in other European cities experiencing economic pains.

Recall that scores of women and youth in the early hours of today, Monday, February 5, 2024, staged a peaceful protest to express their grievances over the high cost of living in Nigeria, especially, the erratic power and water supply in Minna, the Niger State Capital.

The protesters who were seen carrying placards with inscriptions like “no food” “we are dying of hunger” “save our families” blocked the Minna Bida Road for hours preventing vehicular movement.
