Massive Protest Erupts In Minna Over High Cost Of Living

Residents of Minna, the Niger State capital, on Monday, protested the high cost of living in the country, blocking major roads within the metropolis.

The protesters including women and youths were heard chanting protest songs, while security agents including policemen looked on.

The protesters said the rising cost of food items and poor government effort to arrest the situation forced them to block major roads so that the government will hear their cry.

Yakubu Garba, the Deputy Governor of Niger State, addressed the demonstrators and stated that the government is aware of the suffering and difficulty that families are experiencing at this time.

He added that the administration is striving to reduce living costs and the repercussions of the elimination of petrol subsidies.
