According to the survey conducted by the Africa Polling Institute and Statisense, the biggest concerns for Nigerians include widespread hunger (36%) and an inability to meet basic needs (28%). Unemployment also remains a major crisis, with 13% of respondents citing it as a top issue.

Other concerns include heightened insecurity (9%), ongoing electricity blackouts and outages (5%), and deficient infrastructure (5%). The weak economy, spiking electricity tariffs, and fuel scarcity were also mentioned as pressing problems.

“The data clearly shows that the majority of Nigerians are struggling to simply get by under the Tinubu government,” said Amara Nwankpa, director of the Public Policy Initiative at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Foundation. “Addressing the hunger crisis and helping citizens meet their basic needs must be the top priorities for the administration.”

President Tinubu campaigned on promises to revive the economy, create jobs, and improve living standards. However, in his first year, Nigeria has seen soaring inflation, high unemployment, and a rise in the number of citizens living in poverty.

“Nigerians are tired of empty promises. They want real, tangible solutions to the very real crises they face every day,” said Nwankpa. “The government must take urgent action to alleviate the suffering of the Nigerian people.”
