We hear you loud and clear, Osinbajo tells protesters


Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has acknowledged the complaints of protesting Nigerians, according to Laolu Akande, his media aide.

On Monday, hundreds of Nigerians across the country poured into the streets to protest against the government’s failings – inability to bring down inflation,  provide security, etc.

The protests were intense in Lagos and Abuja.

A few minutes after the end of the Abuja leg, Akande tweeted that the acting president had heard the complaints of Nigerians.

Below are his tweets.
