Senate President Akpabio Claims Economic Hardship Protests are Sponsored

During a Senate session on Tuesday, President of the Senate Godswill Akpabio stated that many of the recent protests over Nigeria’s economic hardship have been sponsored campaigns.


“You can see a lot of sponsored protests here and there. Most of those sponsored protests are not aware of the kind of efforts being made by this Senate to tackle the situation,” Akpabio declared.


“There is no father that wants to see his child sleep in the night without food, with their stomach grumbling. So we must provide.”

The Senate President did not provide evidence to back up his claim that the protests have sponsors behind them.

The comments come amid widespread demonstrations and civil actions across Nigeria over surging costs of living, unemployment, and hunger.
