Sallah Celebrations: Youth Party charges FG to prioritize Affordable Public Transport


 Youth Party has urged the Federal Government to prioritize the needs of Nigerians amidst high cost of living in the country.

The Party in a statement signed by it’s National Publicity Secretary, Ayodele Adio, accused the Federal Government of lack of seriousness in its dialogue with Nigerians.

The statement added that Nigerians, including the Muslim faithful, are struggling with record-high inflation, which has driven up the costs of rams, tomatoes, bags of rice and other food items.

According to the Party, it is mandatory on the government to optimally discharge its responsibilities to the people, adding that it is only when this is done that there can be love between the government and the governed.

The statement urged Federal government to prioritise the needs of Nigerians, stating that democracy can only thrive when the basic needs of the people are met.

Youth Party added that combination of higher costs and decreased customer spending is creating a challenging environment for both buyers and sellers as the festive season approaches.

“Until something is done about the issue of affordable public transport, the issue of high cost of food production, would continue to eat deep into the pocket of anyone, whether you’re celebrating Sallah or not”, the Party added.

Youth Party congratulated Muslims across the country and prayed that their supplications and sacrifices this season and even after will receive the fitting rewards from Almighty Allah.
