Hardship: ‘You only care about yourself’ – Aisha Yesufu slams protesters



Political activist, Aisha Yesufu, has slammed Nigerians
protesting over the high level of economic hardship in the country.


Nigerians are currently going through untold economic
hardship as many families could no longer boast of a square meal per day.


The situation has led to protests in some part of the
country with residents of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital being the latest to
take to the streets to show their anger.



Angry youths in Oyo State hit the
streets to protest the high cost of living, food inflation and the current
economic hardship in the country.


Our correspondent observed the irate youths were also
chanting songs to show their grievances.



They brandished placards with inscriptions such as ‘End food
hike and inflation’, ‘The poor is starving’ and ‘Tinubu, don’t forget your
promises’, amongst others.


Aisha Yesufu, made popular by her role in the Bring Back Our
Girls, BBOG, noted that those protesting over food inflation and its resultant
hunger in Nigeria were silent when Boko Haram and bandits and other terrorists
kidnap, kill and displace innocent people.



“For years farmers were being displaced and sent to IDP
Camps yet you felt it wasn’t your business,” she wrote on X.


“You were even angry that people were protesting insecurity
and blocking your way. Today you are in the streets protesting against hunger.


“You kept your empathy only for yourself.”
