Popular Nigerian singer, Folarin Falana aka Falz and his father, Femi Falana protest against insecurity and poverty in the country.

Folarin Falana, better known by his stage name Falz, is a Nigerian rapper, songwriter and actor who began his career while in secondary school after forming a group called “The School Boys” with his friend before his professional career as a music artist began in 2009. His father, Femi Falana is a Nigerian lawyer and human rights activist. The protesters, under the aegis of the Peoples Alternative Political Movement, marched from the busy Ikeja bus stop to the governor’s office through the secretariat to the Lagos State House of Assembly chanting protest songs.

The movement is a coalition of hundreds of groups including the Nigeria Labour Congress and its affiliates, the Alliance On Surviving COVID 19 And Beyond; Joint Action Front; Coalition Of Northern Groups; Green Alliance Nigeria; CONGOS – Edo; North East Development Association and their respective affiliates. Top activist, Jaye Gaskiya was part of the demonstration tagged ‘Enough is Enough’.

A statement issued captured seven key demands which include the immediate convening of the Nigeria Police Council to discuss the security challenges and an end to the arbitrary sacking of workers.

It further stated, “We reject any plans to further hike energy costs – in price of fuel and electricity tariff; as these costs are not only already at unbearable levels, but also because these price hikes are the major cause of rising and unbearable costs of living, expressed in rising inflation.”
