Benin city was put on a stand still today (Tuesday) as elderly women in the state came out in mass to protest the Land Use Charge recently enacted by the Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Oshiomhole has been accused by many civil societies as well as the youths in the state who believed that the new law will add to the hardship of the people.
A group, Takalawa Parliament had protested, requesting the governor to explain how the Internal Generated Revenue (IGR) and the several loans have been judiciously utilized.
To express their anger, elder people joined the group who believed that such law is not good for the people.
Many of the elder women protested unclad, carrying different playcard with the inscription “Oshio you are a bad man”
