Kano Residents Protest Over High Cost of Living In Nigeria

by Victor Ndubuisi

Because they are angry about the growing cost of living, Kano residents have taken to the streets in protest.

In Kano State, the demonstrators—the most of them are young people—are observed holding signs with various slogans along Airport Road and Muritala Muhammad Way.

They lament the hardship and claim they are unable to cope, and they demand the government to restore fuel subsidies and open Nigeria’s borders.

Additionally, they demand that Chief Bola Tinubu address the “rising fall” of Naira, arguing that daily deaths due to starvation occur.

They said:

“What our leaders are doing to us is so unfair and we have been pushed to the wall.

“Life is so difficult and our children can no longer go to school due to hunger and our inability to pay school fees.

“Prices of food items keep increasing daily and our borders are closed, we want it open.

“We are really suffering in this country, a bag of local rice in the market is about #60,000, and we can no longer afford it.

“This is not what we expect from the government.”

According to Arise TV, the youths pledged to mobilise more people to express their dissatisfaction on the streets.
