'We hear you loud and clear, you deserve a decent life' - Acting President Osinbajo tells anti-government protesters


Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday told Nigerians demanding good governance and an urgent explanation for the country’s economic crisis that the government can hear them load and clear.

He wrote on Twitter: "To those who are protesting, WE HEAR YOU loud and clear.

"To those who are on the streets protesting the economic situation & those who are not, but feel the pain of economic hardship, we hear you.

"You deserve a decent life and and we are working night and day to make life easier.

Nigerians took to the streets in major cities on Monday to protest against the government’s handling of the country’s economic crisis.

People gathered from early morning at the National Stadium in Lagos State, holding signs including “The unemployed are hungry and angry” and “I will not be silent.”

The protestors then marched through the streets to the rhythm of drums and trumpets, singing “enough is enough”.
The protestors were accompanied by police, who had earlier warned Nigerians not to assemble because of fears of a “breakdown of law and order with attendant loss of lives and property”.
