Niger youths vow to protest against FG’s ill treatment
Youths of Niger State have vowed to stage a protest against what they described as injustice in Abuja over the way and manner in which the Federal Government is handling federal roads in the state.
The youths were particularly disenchanted at the discontinuation of the expansion and rehabilitation of the Suleja-Minna road, initiated and awarded by the administration of former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
Speaking under the aegis of Coalition of Niger State Civil Society Groups, the youths described the dilapidated state of all federal roads in Niger State as unjust and unacceptable.
The groups argued the state that voted massively for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015 and 2019, with the largest landmass in Nigeria and had produced two former heads of state, Niger was not being fairly treated.
