Weetalknaija Daily Post can authoritatively report that, Commercial sex workers in Onitsha, Anambra State, under the aegis of Self-Made Women of Substance, have threatened to embark on an indefinite strike over the recent hike in the pump price of petrol and increase in electricity tariff.

One of their leaders, Uto Nwanyi, who claimed to be the patron, told Weetalknaija Daily Post that, the recent hikes came when they are yet to recover from the effects of coronavirus.

“The issue of Coronavirus started in March this year and lasted for four months. Throughout the period, our members went out of business; no patronage of any kind; none of our members was able to meet up with personal needs,” Uto Nwanyi lamented.
“When we were yet to recover from the Coronavirus, the Federal Government came up with their pump price increment. Electricity companies also came up with tariff hike.

This led to an increase in house rent, transportation and general cost of living. The situation bites us more than it affects any other group in Nigeria. Therefore, we are of the opinion that the situation is reversed within seven days,” she said.

Uto Nwanyi, flanked by another colleague, identified simply as Phina, said if the Federal Government fails to act fast in bringing the prices down, they would be left with no other option than to mobilize for the strike.
“If that is not done, we shall mobilize our members for an indefinite strike from October 1.
