Controversial Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to remove subsidy on petrol and introduce it on menstrual pads for women.
He made this known via a post on his official Instagram page on Friday, 24th January.
“The poverty in Nigeria is too much, girls and women should pay less to getting menstrual pads… 🤷♀️🤷♀️The cost of menstrual pad in Nigeria remains the highest in west #Africa, why? 🤷♀️If you go to #Ghana or any other west African #country, ✈️you will be shocked to know that #Naija women pay more for menstrual pads. How can something that used to go for 200 Naira or less, is now getting to 500 Naira in some part of #Lagos and #Abuja, this is wrong, i am the only popular #actor in #Nigeria that has ever gotten the attention of @chrissyteigen in #Hollywood, 🎬and on behalf of the association of responsible #boyfriends and concerned brothers in Naija, i call on President #Buhari to put subsidy on menstrual pads for women because so many #girls in the #rural areas of Nigeria whose parent are poor can not afford it.”
