Nationwide protest over hike in food prices coming – Primate Ayodele warns Buhari


The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, on Friday warned President Muhammadu Buhari over the current economic crisis that has led to an increase in prices of essential commodities.

Primate Ayodele warned of an upcoming nationwide protest due to the hike in food prices, which has affected every Nigerian.

In a statement by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, the clergyman said that unless the Federal Government provides a solution to the lingering economic crisis, the protest will be severe.

Primate Ayodele said the masses, the youths, women, men, and children will be part of the nationwide protest.

According to the clergyman, the hardship already being experienced will not be subsided, and unless the government does the needful, it would lead to a serious issue in the country.

He urged President Buhari to look into it as soon as possible to avert the impediment.

‘’Nigerians will protest because of the hike in food prices. There will be so much hardship which will cause the government the unexpected. The president must see into food matters otherwise Nigeria will go up in flames as a result of this.

‘’The price of things will keep increasing. Essential commodities like pepper, palm oil, and gas will keep increasing and these are what the average Nigerian use on a daily basis,” he said.

‘’The government must do something to avert this coming protest, it will involve the youths, old men and women, it will be very serious. The government needs to look into it as soon as possible.’’
