Hundreds of civil servants took to the streets of Akure, the Ondo State capital on Tuesday to protest current economic hardship in the country.

The protest was based on the directives of the national body of the Nigeria Labour Congress.

The peaceful protest is ongoing along the major roads in the capital city while the protesters are chanting various solidarity songs.

They also wielded placards with different inscriptions such as, “Stop the hunger, lower food prices,’ ‘Fix the local refineries end, oil subsidy,’ ‘Tax the rich, subsidise for the poor, and ‘ ‘End naira devaluation, support local production’ among others.

Security operatives were seen around the town to ensure that hoodlums do not hijack the protest
