Ayo Makun, a Nigerian comedian, actor, and producer best known by his stage name AY, has criticised the situation of the country.
In a message on his Instagram page, AY stated that he grew up hearing that Nigeria would improve, but that the country is deteriorating as he approaches his fifties and nothing is improving.
He wondered what kind of Groundhog Day existence we had in our country, noting how the more things appear to change, the more they remain the same.
AY went on to ask how many people have incomes that cover their basic requirements.
“Nigeria go better us what one grew up hearing. I’m still hearing it in my fifties. What kind of Groundhog Day existence do we live in in this country though? The more things seem to change, they remain the same.
How many of us do have wages more than sufficient enough to cover the bare cost of living in Nigeria?”.
Taking to his comment section, many concurred with them as they joined him to bemoan the country’s predicament.
