HARDSHIP: NO NEED FOR PROTEST IN THE SOUTHEAST, TINUBU HAS SOLVED OUR PROBLEMS SAYS UMAHI

Minister of Works, Senator David Umahi says residents of Southeast will not join their counterparts in other regions to protest against the high cost of living in Nigeria.

Umahi made the assertion at the weekend while addressing journalists at his Uburu residence in Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.

According to the former governor of Ebonyi State, President Bola Tinubu has solved the major problems of the region, which he said was the incessant clash between farmers and herders.

The Minister claimed that the region’s present predicaments are self-inflicting, stressing that the activities of the “unknown but known gunmen”, are now the major challenges of the Southeast.

“If you check very well, especially in the Southeast, you will know that we no longer have incessant farmers/herders clashes.

“So, why should we join the protest when the President has solved our major problem?

“The problem we now have in the Southeast is self-inflicted. That is the issue of unknown but known gunmen.

“So, if we are protesting, who are we protesting against? We are protesting against a President that has solved herders/farmers clashes.

“If you remove the issue of unknown gunmen, the Southeast will be completely safe and farmers can work. So, we can’t go and join anybody to protest.”
