He stated that President Bola Tinubu’s removal of fuel subsidy brought about untold hardship for Nigerians, adding that prices of goods and services continue to rise.

AbdulQuadri also criticised the official remuneration packages for federal legislators in Nigeria, which, according to him, are exorbitant.

He said:

“Hunger, starvation is the order of the day, borne out of the insincerity of our leaders.
“The most painful part of this argument is that our retirees who have served this country for 35 years are being neglected, particularly our teachers who strive to make this country great.”

He lamented that despite Nigerian voters exercising their duty under the sun and in the rain with the hope that things will improve, the problems of Nigeria refuse to abate.

The young student did not spare the judiciary, accusing the institution of fraudulently upturning the outcome of elections.
