‘Don’t Protest Against President Bola Tinubu’ — Afenifere Begs Yorubas, Nigerians | MarvelTvUpdates

Amid the economic hardship in Nigeria, the pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has appealed to Yorubas not to participate in the planned nationwide protests.

Reuben Fasoranti, the chairman of the Afenifere Elders Caucus, urged Yorubas and Nigerians to be understanding with Tinubu’s government.

On February 16, the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, disclosed plans to embark on a two-day strike, scheduled for February 27 and 28, to protest the economic hardship being faced by Nigerians.

Fasoranti, however, said the economic measures by the federal government are aimed at bringing prosperity to the country.

The Afenifere leader noted that the government is committed to addressing the root causes of the current economic hardship.

In a statement he signed, Fasoranti said: “As a responsible leader, I appeal to every Yoruba man and woman, young and old, and our fellow citizens across the nationalities, to exercise patience and refrain from engaging in protests or actions that may escalate tensions.

“The outcry over the hardship, hunger, and price hikes is not unexpected. However, we must come to terms with the realities of our national challenges, which the present administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is striving to resolve.”
