Amid the nation’s economic crisis, human rights attorney Pelumi Olajengbesi, who practices in Abuja, has called for Nigerian millionaires to donate as they did during the COVID-19 pandemic 2020 to alleviate hunger.

Olajengbesi said in a statement on Wednesday that if public unrest is not controlled, famine in the country could worsen.

He said, “Our dear country is going through one of the toughest times in history, economically, no thanks to the policies of the new government.

“Multinationals are exiting the country, thousands of jobs lost.

“There is hunger in the land. And as the saying goes, ‘a hungry man is an angry man’, hence, the protests spreading over the country as demonstrators express displeasure over the hardship in the land”.

He compared the current state of affairs in the nation to the coronavirus epidemic four years prior, during which billionaires like Aliko Dangote led the Private Sector Coalition Against COVID-19 through their collaborative efforts with the Central Bank of Nigeria.

“It’s time for our billionaires and respected business moguls in the private sector to step in and provide succour for our teeming citizens, just like they graciously did during the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
