Nigerians Can’t Breathe – APC Youths Lament High Living Cost Under Tinubu

A group in the All Progressives Congress (APC), the League of Youth Voters for Tinubu and Shettima, has decried the high cost of living under this current administration.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, national coordinator of the group, Ayoola Oyejide, said the rise in the cost of living has become unbearable for the ordinary Nigerian.

Oyejide urged the President to address the unbearable rising cost of living and revamp the ailing, critically dysfunctional economy.

“Rise in the cost of living is unprecedented and unbearable. We can’t breathe. The president is expected to revamp our ailing and critically dysfunctional economy,” he said.

“Corruption among public functionaries in Nigeria is endemic. Though the president is strongly opposed to it, we expect him to confront the menace head-on, setting an example of transparency and zero tolerance of self-regard.”

The group urged the president to ensure that young people are appointed to his administration, noting that the country is blessed with intelligent youths.

“Therefore, we expect him to continue in that line, most especially, in his subsequent appointment of ministers, heads of departments and agencies, board members of federal institutions, etc.”

Politics Nigeria recalls that the World Bank had warned that 101 million Nigerians may become poorer if the government fails to compensate vulnerable citizens for fuel subsidy removal.
