We’re mobilising against economic hardship in Nigeria, says Olorode
Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), labour unions, market men and women, analysts and others are being mobilised to resist economic hardship and hike in prices of essential goods, such as fuel, gas, electricity and others.
Chairman of Secretariat Collectives of the Peoples Alternative Political Movement (TPAP-M), Prof. Omotoye Olorode, disclosed this to The Guardian in Oyo State, yesterday.
Olorode, a former Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State, said Nigerians should be getting ready for mass action to resist any attempt to further impoverish the people.
He said: “People should get ready for another mass action against hardship in the country.
“We are mobilising against general economic hardship in the country. The trade and labour centres, civil society organisations, journalists, working-class people, market women and others should get ready.
“People should get ready for mass action against the increase of prices of items in the country and the proposal to increase price of fuel.”
