A 28-year-old man, Nurudeen Lliyasu, has climbed a telecommunication mast in Abuja, to protest the poor economy in the country.

The man was seen on top of the mast at about noon on Wednesday at AYA, Abuja.

Posters with different inscriptions were seen along the AYA road and at the foot of the mast, which read: `Another hope betrayed battered, mutilated with collapsed economy.

Others include, ‘inflation and hunger is killing Nigerians’, ‘unemployment continues unabated’, and ‘Nigeria is on the precipice of collapse’ among others.

Mr Lliyasu said he would remain on the mast for the next seven days, adding that he was ready to sacrifice his life for the progress of the country.

“I am on hunger strike to protest and register my grievances on the condition of the country; I will remain here for the next seven days and I do not mind if I die here.

“If my dying on this mast will change the economy of this country, then I choose to die for others to live a good life.

“I have not eaten for days and also other Nigerians, if I die on this mast I am not worried, no roads in the states only in the city of Abuja you can see good roads.

‘’The doctors have said that a man can survive only on water without food for some days, I believe I can and if I cannot I will die.”

Mr Lliyasu said there was nothing working in the country, adding that the education, health system, infrastructure are all in bad shape.

He said he was into transport business and other businesses.

The security man in the area, Mr Ayuba Luka said that Mr Lliyasu approached him that he wants to climb the mast but that he warned him against it.

“He came to me I warned him not to climb that mast, but when I left the site he sneaked in and climbed it.

“I was shocked when I came back and saw him on the topmost part of the mast, I have called my supervisor to come and take necessary action.”
