The poverty situation in the country seems to be increasing. In fact, as of 2020, about forty percent of the country's population is said to live below poverty level. Many Nigerians are not happy about the situation.


The Nigerian National Bureau of Statistics, the country's top agency on statics has revealed that Nigeria's Unemployment Rate Increases to 33.3% in Q4 2020 from 27.1% in Q2 2020. This comes under the watch of the current president and Nigerians are not happy about this in any way.

Petrol price

Petrol is very important to Nigerians and as of today, the people of the country are paying premium price for the product. Remember that stable electricity continues to elude the people and the other way to get electricity - petrol - is getting more expensive.

Prices of food and other commodities

Going to the market: Even with N5000, a Nigerian today is poor. Why? the price of foodstuffs is now expensive. Not only this, other essential commodities can only be purchased with top naira. The situation is another reason some Nigerians dislike the current government.

Kaita, who is from the same senatorial district as President Muhammadu Buhari, said like southerners, northerners should be allowed to live and carry out their businesses in the south in line with the country’s constitution.

Legit.ng gathered that Governor of Zamfara state Bello Matawalle had warned that southerners living in the north should not expect protection if the killing of northerners continued in the South.
