Nigerians who reacted to the development saw it as a mere lullaby to a hungry baby to go to sleep, in that when he wakes up, the hunger continues.

“What happens after the two weeks? Is it not a ploy to keep us quiet for the mean time? They should stop playing pranks and tackle this once and for all,” charged Mr. Isiaka Mustapha, who operates a business centre at KARU Site area of the FCT.
