Ondo youth protest scarcity of fuel, naira


Protesters in Ondo state Wednesday again blocked the Ilesha-Akure-Owo highway over scarcity of the naira and high cost of fuel.

The protesters prepared a musical stage and danced on the highway.

Organisers of the protest warned hoodlums against making any attempts to hijack the protest.

“This is a peaceful protest. We are here to tell the government we are not happy but whoever wants to hijack this protest to loot and destroy properties will be handed over to the police,” one of the protesters said.

Ondo state chairman of National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS), Comrade Oloroso Surprise, said the protest was to send a message to the government that the people are not happy with the current situation in the country.

Comrade Fasipe advised the federal government to streamline the naira policy in line with the need of the people.
