OYO: The People Protest Over Electricity, Petrol Hike

On Tuesday, students, workers e.t.c hit the streets in Ibadan to express their displeasure at the hike in the price of petrol as well as the increase of electricity tariff.

The protest started at the Awolowo Junction area of the state capital with some people holding Placards with inscriptions on it, while others where chanting songs.

Mayowa Opakunle, The Chairman, Joint Campus Committee of the National Association of Nigerian Students,  said:

“We are out on the streets to register our grievances and show our displeasure at the wicked policies and unjust treatment of Nigerians by the Federal Government.

“We say no to fuel price hike and electricity tariff increment at this period when many people have lost their jobs, many have not even been paid salaries for the past six months.

“Prices of food, other goods and services have continued to increase while salaries are either being slashed into half for so many while others don’t even get at all.“But despite these hardships, the government has continued to increase prices of commodities. The consistent show of ineptitude and cluelessness on the part of the President and his cabinet is worrisome.”
