Edo CSOs Storm Benin Protest Over Economic Hardship

Civil Society Organisations in Edo State have stormed the streets of Benin City.

The protest followed the current economic hardship currently affecting Nigerians.

Members of the CSOs carried various placards such as “End Economic Hardship”, “FG End the Hunger in Nigeria Now,” among many others to express their grievances.

Meanwhile, a human rights group identified as the “Take It Back Movement” has hit the streets of Lagos State to protest against the soaring price of food and the high cost of living in the country.

This protest was held against the warning issued by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Adegoke Fayoade, on Sunday.

The Nigeria Labour Congress has vowed to also stage a protest beginning tomorrow.

On February 16, the NLC announced the nationwide protest scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday over the alleged government’s failure to implement agreements reached between both parties on October 2, 2023, following the removal of the fuel subsidy.

The decision followed the conclusion of a 14-day ultimatum issued to the Federal Government to implement measures against the widespread hardship.
