In an explosive response to the question about the present state of the nation, the man whose identity could not be confirmed as at the time this vox pop was carried out, noted that the Nigerian government has to do something about the suffering of the people before it gets out of hand.
“How can you work and not get paid? No work, no money, I am telling you what is happening,” he began in local pidgin English.
The man put his head on the railing to show that he did not tell lies about him trekking from Mowe to Victoria Island.
Asked what he thinks the federal government should do to eradicate the challenges, the man said: “they should help us. See, if they don’t do anything for us, we go dey rob o… unless if they do something.”
The man looked unperturbed by the chances that he may be caught if he gets involved in armed robbery, and even when our correspondent tried to remind him of the danger, he remained adamant.
According to him: “Let them sentence me to life jail and let me go. I already have four children and a wife at home.”
