It was a mild drama played that out on Friday. December 29, as residents of Lagos Island and traders of the popular Idumota market, yelled at President Bola Tinubu.
The residents expressed dissatisfaction with President Tinubu, shouting in Yoruba, “Ebi npa wa oo” meaning- we are hungry.
The traders who filed on both sides of the road as the convoy of the president passed through the ever-busy market, refused to hail him but instead kept talking of their pains believed to have been caused by the government.
Underneath the complaining voices in the video, residents were heard saying the presidency had known the plans of the people which was the reason for the heavy security. However, the alleged initial plan was not made known.
