The Federal government has accused the Government of Canada of a double standard in the way protesters deemed to be violent are perceived in Nigeria and in the West.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alh. Lai Mohammed made the accusation on Sunday while reacting to the unfolding development in Canada, where the Canadian protesters, who have blockaded roads and resorted to inconveniencing others, have been branded as terrorists and subjected to a number of clampdowns by government and private organizations.
It would be recalled that truckers have been protesting in Canada in the past few days over Covid-19 vaccine mandates and other Covid-19 restrictions and have been branded as insurrectionists or terrorists and subjected to a number of clampdowns by the government and private organizations for blockading roads and resorting to inconveniencing others.
