Some Nigerians have called on the former Presidential aspirant of Peoples’ Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakkar to come out and lead the protest against @Buhari the President’s increment in fuel price.
As earlier reported by Daily Tells Nigeria, Atiku took to his social media account to condemned Mr. Buhari’s decision to increase the fuel price to N151.56.
However, his followers on both the facebook and twitter accounts has beckoned on him to come out to the street and protest and not on the social media.
Some even said if he meant what he said and he is prepared to lead in 2023, he should lead them in a street protest as they he did during former President, Goodluck Jonathan.
I reject the increased electricity tariffs. Coming out of the lockdown, Nigerians need a stimulus, not an impetuous disregard for the challenges they face. Many Nigerians have not earned an income for months, due to no fault of theirs. This increase is ill-timed and ill-advised.
