If we see Tinubu, we’ll beat him up over hardship – Market Women

By Mo Isa

The current hardship in Nigeria has made some market women in Ogun State to call for the resignation of President Bola Tinubu.

The market women who lamented the incessant hike in prices of goods and services also threatened to beat up the President if they see him one-on-one.

According to SaharaReporters, the market women disclosed this while speaking to a news reporter on Wednesday, noting that Tinubu disappointed Nigerians, particularly the Yoruba.

One of the women, aged, said: “He [Tinubu] has disappointed us in Yoruba land, he is not behaving like a Yoruba man.”

Another said, “Everything is so costly to the extent that we cannot afford to buy one bowl of garri. We are tired of everything, when I started business, a carton of fish was N200 but now it is N20,000.

“We don’t have food to eat, old people are dying. Business is not moving, and there’s nothing. We are all hungry.

“This problem is too much. If you can’t solve our problem, don’t add to it.”

Another trader appealed to the president to have mercy on Nigerians, saying, “We’re tired of Nigeria; everything is costly, everything is getting costly every day.

“What he promised us is not what’s happening now. This is too much.

“At this point we are tired, things are too costly. A carton of Titus is N100,000; it used to cost N17,000. Kote is going to N60,000. Shawa, which we used to sell for N70, now goes for N700”

When asked what they would tell the president if they had the opportunity to see him, one of the traders said “We will beat the President if we have opportunity of seeing him, we will beat him. What he told us is not what he is doing.”
