Senator Shehu Sani, a former federal lawmaker, declared that he led a demonstration against Babangida, Obasanjo, and Jonathan’s administration due to the elimination of subsidies.
In an interview with Arise Tv, he stated that even President Tinubu had previously led a demonstration against the government, but circumstances have changed and Tinubu is now on the receiving end of the protest.
According to him, the root of the protest is a lack of communication between the two parties involved.
He said, “If the current administration considers the repair of refineries, it will consume over 70% of the administration. But things like an increase in wages and provision of finances for conversion of vehicles from petrol to gas and giving direct financial support to Nigerians can be achieved immediately.
The problem is the lack of communication between the protesters and the government. I and the civil rights group had led protests against Babangida, Obasanjo and Jonathan’s regime for the removal of subsidies and President Tinubu is a major funder of protests and leader of protests, but now he’s on the opposite side of the battle line nevertheless all that the protesters are demanding are achievable.”
