According to a Facebook user, Na-Allah Mohammed Zagga, who posted the
photo today, October 21, the man pictured from Warra, Kebbi, reportedly
collapsed in reaction to the slashing of his salary from N18, 000 to
five thousand Naira by the Ngaski Local Government Council of Kebbi
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.
