Nigeria sex workers to protest fuel price hike

19 May 2016, 12:47

Lagos - Members of the National Association of Nigerian Prostitutes (NANP), are planning to protest the high cost of living in the country occasioned by the increase in the pump price of petrol.

The body in a statement signed by its new leader, Tamar Tion and Secretary, Sandra Efosa, said their decision to embark on the strike, stems from the fact that their business has been affected by the increase in fuel price.

Part of the communique released by the body after its national executive meeting reads:

"The members of the National Association of Nigerian Prostitutes (NANP), has concluded plans to embark on a mother of all protest to show our anger on the current economic hardship the citizens of Nigeria are passing through.

The hardship has affected every facet of the society including our business as our customer base has diminished and the few men that seek our services do not have the money to pay, even after many of our members have reduced their prices drastically.

Some of our members charge as low as N500 and yet, the customers complain because they do not have the money. We supported President Muhammadu Buhari when he was campaigning, believing he was going to bring about the desired change.

But now things have gone from bad to worse. We are bread winners in our families and some of us have lots of responsibilities. Since this government came into power, things have sky rocketed. And to add to our woes, they have increased the fuel price, making the ordinary Nigerians the worse off.

We are mobilizing our members all over the country to embark on the protest on a date to be announced soon. We will occupy the National Assembly, the various state secretariats and picket the PHCN, NNPC and other parastatals. We are Nigerians and we pay taxes, so we also feel the pains."
