Sex, protests, prayers – Different ways Nigerians are reacting to economic woes
It’s no longer news that the country is beset by great economic woes caused by some of the policies of President Bola Tinubu’s government. Chief among these challenges is the astronomical rise in food prices.
The twin decisions of petrol subsidy removal and floatation of the naira have continued to impact the nation’s economy negatively, with the inflation rate going to a record high.
To compound the situation, electricity supply has drastically plummeted since the turn of the year. Unsurprisingly, the Nigerian masses bear the brunt of these economic misfortunes.
While the social media space has been full of lamentations of the suffering masses for a while now, some citizens decided to follow a different route to express their angst during the week.
From Rivers to Niger and Yobe in the far north, many Nigerians adopted unique ways to express their displeasure over the biting economic condition.
