Singer J Martins has lamented about how the current economic situation in the country is hitting him in the pocket – just like millions of Nigerians.
He vented his frustration on Instagram: “I’ve spent almost 9 times my planned budget for 3 months in 2 weeks, with no corresponding increase in income. If I’m expected to act like its absolutely normal and keep mum for fear of being branded anti-Buhari, or a wailer. Hell NO! I won’t.”
Buhari’s supporters tend to label anyone complaining about the president and the ruling party as a “wailer”. With petrol and power shortages taking a turn for the worse and many businesses struggling to find vital foreign exchanges for their imports, there is a lot of weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth across the country, even among erstwhile Buhari supporters.
