Reports on the planned protest by the labour unions, and high cost of living, dominate the cover pages of Nigerian newspapers.

The Punch reports that organised labour has commenced mobilising its members for a nationwide protest slated for February 27 and 28 over the cost of living crisis in the country. The newspaper says Abdulfatah Ahmed, a former governor of Kwara state, has been detained over alleged N10 million fraud.

Daily Trust reports that prices of maize and sorghum in Taraba, Plateau, Kaduna, and Kano states have dropped significantly across the states, following the decision of major feed producers to suspend the purchase of grains. The newspaper says long queues have resurfaced in some filling stations in Lagos and Abuja as the National Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) embarked on the strike over the high cost of freight.

The Guardian reports that the federal government granted N3.96 trillion tax credit in five years. The newspaper says the protest over the high cost of living has spread to Oyo state as the citizens grapple with hunger.

THISDAY reports that Nigeria’s leading cement manufacturers have agreed to reduce prices and that a 50kg bag of the product should not be between N7,000 and N8,000. The newspaper says Shehu Sani, a former senator, has described the proposed establishment of state police in the country as an illusion and recipe for anarchy.
