We Are Hungry, Help Us – Women Cry To Tinubu

Some Nigerian women have cried out in pain and despair over the lingering economic hardship in the country, pleading to president Bola Ahmed Tinubu to come to their aid before they die of hunger.

In an interview with Guardian, two women expressed sadness over the rising cost of living. One of the women who claimed she voted for President Tinubu during the 2023 elections, said;

‘’President Bola Tinubu, we all voted for you. We thought you would assist us. We are hungry! You can see that I have a load on my head. I have trekked a long distance with it. The money is not enough for the fare to my destination. Please pity the poor/masses. The masses came out to vote for you. I voted for you so you could win. We are hungry!”

In a separate interview, another woman said:

We are hungry! A tin of rice now sells for N1,200.  A five-litre of vegetable oil is N7,000. Tinubu, is that good? Everything is expensive. We are hungry. Pity the poor. Have mercy on us, Have mercy on us. So that we don’t let us die of hunger. Don’t let us suffer”.
