President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio says some of the street protests against the rising cost of living in the country are sponsored.

Akpabio stated this while speaking on the floor of the Upper Chamber on Tuesday, claiming the protesters are not aware of the efforts by the Senate and the Federal Government to address the situation.

He said “You can see a lot of sponsored protests here and there but those people are not aware, most of those sponsored protesters are not aware of the kind of efforts made by this senate to tackle the situation together with the management team of the federal government”.

Recall that there have been different protests in different parts of the country, with the latest on Monday in Ibadan, the capital city of Oyo State.

Also, some residents Niger, Kano and Sokoto States had taken to the streets to protest the prevailing economic hardship.
