TIB, AAC, ERC, others announce mass protest on June 12 over hardship

Following the inability of the federal government to address the high cost of living and hardship in Nigeria, some members of Nigerian civil societies have scheduled Wednesday June 12, 2024 for a mass protest.

This was disclosed in a statement titled, ‘, “Enough is Enough to Hardship and Hunger Great Nigerian People,’ jointly signed by the organizations.

The concerned organizations include the Take-It-Back Movement (TIB), the African Action Congress party (AAC), the Joint Action Front (JAF), the Education Rights Campaign (ERC), the Socialist Workers and the Youth League (SWL) and PRP Vanguard.

They lamented that the masses have acute hunger and hardship following the removal of fuel subsidy in May 29, 2023, by President Tinubu.

According to them, the prices of fuel, food, transport, electricity, school fees and other basic amenities have skyrocketed beyond the financial capacity of common Nigerians.

“Hardly is any average Nigerian able to feed. We are hungry. Our children are hungry. Our youth are becoming criminals and prostitutes. Things are hard.

“Meanwhile, those who put us in this problem continue to feed on fat. President Tinubu, the First Lady and the First son have turned Nigeria’s common wealth into their private feeding bottle.

“The governors, senators, House of Representatives and House of Assembly members are collecting fat salaries and allowances.

“Their friends in business like Aliko Dangote and other thieves, are also smiling to the bank. Yet they tell us to tighten our belts.

“We say enough is enough. IF YOU ARE HUNGRY AND ANGRY, then let us do something about our condition. Don’t sleep at home expecting your condition to become better by miracle.

“As they say, heaven help those who help themselves. We must stop agonizing, let’s start organizing. Join us on a peaceful mass protest.

“Let’s take Nigeria back from the capitalist vultures who have bled it dry. The time for system change is Now,” they said.
