Irked by the way political office holders abuse power, human right activists on Tuesday protested with mock coffins with the hope of pointing out the ills of the current trend.

They therefore warned the two biggest political parties in the country to make urgent changes within seven days or be buried forever.

“Today, we are gathered to showcase two caskets depicting the wickedness of those in them against the masses,” said Comrade Declan Ihekaire, National Coordinator, Concerned Human Rights Nigeria.

“One casket is for PDP while the second is for ACN now APC, ” Ihekaire said further.

The activists gave PDP seven days to find solution to demands by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, who have been on strike for the past two months. They also warned the APC-controlled Lagos State to reduce high school fees at the Lagos State University, LASU.

The activists lamented the presence of too much corruption, mismanagement and theft in the land, adding that they cannot keep quiet while the country is collapsing.

They also called for a renewed and strengthened fight against corruption.
