Man collapses after his salary was slashed from N18,000 to N5,000 in Kebbi State
Look at what our so-called democracy has done to him! The man in this picture was trying to pull himself together after he collapsed in reaction to the slashing of his salary from N18,000 to five thousand naira by the Ngaski Local Government Council of Kebbi State. The poor Nigerians are the guinea pigs of economic sacrifices brought on by the recession. Why are the so-called elected leaders not making substantial and significant sacrifices to reflect our economic realities?
Why must the burden of sacrifices be disproportionately borne by poor Nigerians? How can you slash eighteen thousand minimum wage when a bag of rice sells for more than twenty thousand naira! This is a country where our so-called representatives are carting away millions monthly as salaries and allowances while millions of poor Nigerians are buffeted daily by hunger, poverty and starvation.
