Nollywood actress, Hilda Dokubo, has called on Nigerians to be ready for a new way of life characterised by prolonged fasting and extensive trekking.
In a video shared on her Instagram account on Thursday, accompanied by the caption “Whilst we celebrate our victory, let us prepare for a new lifestyle of long fasting, long trekking, and long-suffering. Their mandate is mandating’”, Dokubo emphasized the need for citizens to adapt to the prevailing challenges in the country.
Commenting on the hike in fuel prices, Dokubo said individuals should resort to trekking as fuel prices soar.
Reflecting on the economic challenges facing the nation, she lamented the soaring prices of essential commodities such as electricity, fuel, bread, and Garri.
Despite the hardships, Dokubo encouraged Nigerians to remain resilient, particularly families with numerous children, expressing confidence in their ability to persevere through adversity.
She said in part, “Just so you know, fuel is N1,250 which means, on your mandate you have to stand, on your leg you have to walk. Get ready. All of you who do not like walking, go and get trainers so that you can waka.
“We have gone back to the 18th century, electricity, twice they have increased it this year, February never even reach half, fuel N1,250, diesel N1,700, bread is almost N3,000, as for Garri, let’s not go there.”
