Some women in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja on Monday staged a protest against hunger, hardship and insecurity in the country, calling for the immediate resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari over his perceived incompetence.

The protest, which held at Gwako Community in Gwagwalada Area Council of the FCT, was part of the activities planned by the residents to register their anger and displeasure at the government's neglect of women's affairs.

The protesters described the insecurity and economic situation in the country as worrisome and uncalled for.

Speaking with journalists, their spokesperson, Stell Ajadi, said lack of basic amenities such as potable water, electricity, good roads and healthcare facilities in the community, led to the protest.
