In a massive show of discontent, thousands of Nigerians, including youths, took to the streets of Lagos State yesterday to protest economic hardship occasioned by the President Bola Tinubu-led government. The protests, which were scheduled nationwide, aimed to express citizens’ displeasure over the current state of the nation.

The demonstrators, who gathered at major roads in Lagos, carried various placards calling for the immediate reversal of some policies implemented by the Tinubu administration. The protests were marked by a sense of urgency and frustration, as the protesters demanded change.

One of the protesters, Francis Nwapa, a social activist, wrote on social media: “We called for it and we are on the street in Ikeja under bridge. The tyrannical and oppressive government of @officialABAT must be shown the way out. We are hungry and angry.”

The Department of State Services (DSS) had earlier warned Nigerians against participating in the protests, but the protesters remained undeterred in their quest for change.

Reports reveal that the protests in Lagos were part of a nationwide movement aimed at expressing the citizens’ dissatisfaction with the current state of the nation.
