Speaking on behalf of the protesters, the Africa Democratic Party’s House of Reps candidate in the state, Ukuanove Odimbu, said the hardship meted out on the common man on the street arising through the fuel hike and hoarding of the new naira notes was becoming unbearable.

The protesters demanded sanction for bank managers in the state for hoarding the new naira notes and asked the President, Muhammadu Buhari and the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, to prevail on the fuel marketers to find an urgent solution to the protracted scarcity.

The protesters carried placards with different inscriptions, drummed as they called for a reduced cost of living for the citizens of the country.
