The Acting President who made statement on his Facebook wall said: "To those who are protesting, WE HEAR YOU loud and clear, those who are on the streets protesting the economic situation and even those who are not, but feel the pain of economic hardship. We hear you loud and clear. You deserve a decent life and and we are working night and day to make life easier."
The undisclosed status of the health of President Muhammadu Buhari and the severe hardship that Nigerians are passing through under this administration as the economy is currently in comatos are part of the reasons that forced the people to the streets in major cities across the country. Lagos, Ibadan, Osogbo and Abuja are among the cities that observed the protest
Nigerians in London also took to the street demanding that the president should address Nigerians as to dispel the rumour of his death.
