In a recent development reported by The Sun Newspaper, Edo Civil Society Organizations (EDOCSO) has given President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima a 14-day ultimatum to resign if they fail to address the prevailing hardships faced by Nigerians.
The ultimatum was communicated through a press release to Benin City journalists, signed by Leftist Austine Enabulele, the party’s Interim TEC Chairman. EDOCSO attributes the current state of extreme hunger and economic difficulties in Nigeria to what they describe as a departure from the social contract entered by President Bola Ahmed, citing alleged wickedness and ineptitude of the government.
The group claims that since assuming leadership, Nigerians have experienced ongoing challenges in their daily lives, exacerbated by factors such as fuel price increases and the continuous rise of the dollar.
They express concern about the impact on everything in the country, including local farm produce, and lament the irony of the saying “whatever goes up must surely come down,” given the persistent challenges in the dollar-naira exchange rate and overall suffering in the nation.
