Afenifere Urges Yorubas Against Participating In Protests And Rallies


Afenifere Urges Yorubas Against Participating In Protests And Rallies

The pan-Yoruba socio-political movement Afenifere has advised Yorubas not to participate in the protest or march that the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) is organising for February 27 and 28.

The organised labour had declared last week that they would stage a two-day walkout in protest of the dire economic circumstances that Nigerians are currently experiencing.

Reuben Fasoranti, the leader of Afenifere, implored Nigerians to exercise patience with President Tinubu as he works to address the issues he inherited when he “assumed office in May 2023” in a message that was made public on Sunday, February 25.

“As a responsible leader, I appeal to every Yoruba man and woman, young and old, and our fellow citizens across the nationalities, to exercise patience and refrain from engaging in protests or actions that may escalate tensions.

“The outcry over the hardship, hunger, and price hikes is not unexpected. However, we must come to terms with the realities of our national challenges, which the present administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is striving to resolve.

“While acknowledging the hardships faced by our people, it is important to recognize that these economic measures, although difficult, are part of a larger strategy aimed at restoring economic prosperity and stability to Nigeria.

“The government’s commitment to implementing these measures is a testament to its dedication to addressing the root causes of our economic challenges, inherited from the ills of the previous years,” he said.

While acknowledging that everyone is finding it difficult to deal with the effects of Tinubu’s economic reforms, he also urged Nigerians to exercise patience with the current administration. The elderly statesman said Nigerians should have faith in the government’s dedication to their well-being.

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
