K1 to Tinubu: Nigerians are crying, suffering, wailing daily over high cost of food, poor living condition

Published

on

Renowned musician King Wasiu Ayinde, popularly known as K1, has made an appeal to President Bola Tinubu, urging him to address the challenges faced by Nigerians amidst the soaring cost of living, food, and essential items.

K1, a staunch supporter of President Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress (APC), played a pivotal role in Tinubu’s presidential victory, leveraging his influence in entertainment and social circles.

In an open letter addressed to the President and also in a video, K1 emphasized the urgent need for a reassessment of economic policies to alleviate the burdens of ordinary Nigerians.

The musician particularly highlighted the alarming depreciation of the Naira against the U.S. dollar, which has contributed significantly to the prevailing economic hardships.

Expressing concern over the mounting socio-economic cries and sufferings of the populace, K1 urged President Tinubu to implement measures that would provide relief to the common man.

He underscored the disillusionment among voters who, having supported Tinubu in the 2023 elections, now felt disheartened by the lack of visible improvements in their daily lives.

Acknowledging the accusations directed at him for influencing people’s votes, K1 remained optimistic that President Tinubu would soon enact policies to reverse the current tide.

Despite the criticisms, the musician reaffirmed his belief in Tinubu’s leadership and expressed hope that the president would prioritize the welfare of the Nigerian people.

As K1 urged a review of economic strategies, he also stressed the importance of pushing out palliatives to cushion the impact on citizens.

The open letter served as both a plea and a call to action, encouraging President Tinubu to address the concerns of a nation in distress and reaffirm the faith placed in his leadership during the electoral process.
