The party also decried the loss of revenues the closure caused Lagos, the economic base of the nation.

The ANN  BoT Chairman, Comrade Adekoya Adebola, in a statement said the practice does not mark any departure from the old as promised by the ruling  All Progressives Congress, APC, and called on Nigerians to “rise again and make their voice count in the 2019 general election.”

He called on Nigerians to back up an ‘Alliance’ that would birth a ‘New Nigeria’ where the president’s visit to any part of the country would not amount to subjection of the citizens to pains and hunger.

“Nigeria must come forth anew. A new Nigeria is imminent, Alliance for New Nigeria is the difference. The truth is that we cannot be having the same people and expect them to bring forth a new Nigeria,” the  BoT Chairman said.
