Ex-Kaduna Senator Shehu Sani has recommended that President Bola Tinubu's administration focus on diligently addressing economic issues to prevent potential protests from disgruntled Nigerians.

The ex-federal lawmaker said this kind of protest does not come with a notice like the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress.

Sani gave this advice via his X account on Friday, following the exchange of words between the NLC and the federal government after the former suspended its two-day warning protest.

The federal government had told the Labour Union’s officials to wait till 2027 if they wanted to contest for the office of the president saying that the protest was uncalled for.

In its response, the NLC said Tinubu should address the hunger, unemployment, and inflation killing the economy, adding that nobody was after his office.

Reacting to the development, Sani said the most dreadful demonstrations are not from organised labour or civil society organisations that issue notice before embarking on it, but rather those staged by the unemployed, hungry, and homeless people who have nothing to lose.

He wrote, “The most dreadful protests are not the controlled ones organised by the Labour Unions, the organised civil society or the opposition parties.

“The protests this country should work hard to avert are the organic ones led by the hungry, the homeless, the unemployed, the downtrodden, and the dregs of the streets; this kind of protest doesn’t come with notice of date of commencement or date of suspension, this protest is the kind led by people who have nothing to lose but their shackles; this is the kind of protest the Government and nation must avoid.”
