The current situation in the country is quite complex and challenging, particularly for the common man. Many people find it difficult to cope with the current economic hardship and uncertainties that this country is facing. The policies implemented by the government have made people struggle to survive.

After the decision to remove oil subsidy, many businesses collapsed, leaving people with no hope. This government has continued to privatise almost everything and left the people in a great dilemma.

The depreciation of the naira has had a significant impact on many businesses. Unfortunately, the government has not taken any effective steps to address this issue.

Also, the introduction of electricity tariff is among the worst decisions made by this government, as many parts of the country incessantly experiencing what is tagged as the collapse of the national grid.

Workers have been struggling to make ends meet as their meagre salaries can no longer sustain them for two weeks. They are left with the option to sit and watch the debate on the new minimum wage on television; which is yet to be agreed upon.

The recently introduced cybersecurity levy is likely to push many Nigerians into poverty as the levy will discourage many businesses that people depend on for their livelihoods.

Above all, politicians and stakeholders in this current administration should urgently bring the plight of Nigerians to the attention of President Bola Tinubu. The Renewed Hope agenda has now turned into renewed suffering and hardship for many Nigerians.
