They bemoaned the state of the economy that has paralysed business activities and impoverished the people.
Reacting to the protest, a political activist, Aisha Yesufu, said the protest that is coming will not be announced because there would be no placards, no date set, and no colour combination.
She wrote: “There will be no placards. No date set. No colour combination. We will all find ourselves on the streets.”
