Osun Protest OnoBello

According to SaharaReporters, members of the Coalition for Civil Societies in Osun have staged a peaceful protest over the hike in electricity tariff and petrol price.

The protesters who began their march from Freedom Park, Osogbo, early in Friday morning, expressed displeasure over the “approval of new electricity tariff and increment in the pump price of petrol is the highest level of insensitivity and wickedness from President Muhammad Buhari-led All Progressives Congress government”.

Punch reports that the protesters displayed placards, some of which read words like “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”, written in capital letters.

Petrol prices have increased for three straight months, rising from N121.50–N123.50 per litre in June to N140.80-N143.80 in July, N148-N150 in August and N158-N162 in September.

The latest price development has however angered Nigerians on social media with many condemning President Buhari and his administration.
