A coalition of Civil Society and pro democracy group under the aegis of Concerned Nigerians have staged a peaceful protest march in Abuja asking ailing Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari to resume or resign his office after he has spent 92 days in London for medical treatment without a definite date for return to work.
The placard carrying protesters converged at the Unity Fountain near Transcorp Hilton with the following inscriptions; “Resume or Resign Nigerians say enough is enough”; “Buhari ! Where are you?” “We Are Tired of Being Enslaved in Our Country,” “Our Mumu Don Do”; “Buhari Called For Impeachment When Yar’adua Was Sick, Now We Are Calling For Same.”
Heavily armed mobile police accompanied the protesters as they moved towards the gate of the Presidential Villa where they vowed to occupy until the President accede to their demands.
The protest was led by flamboyant musician, Charles Oputa aka Charly Boy and the convener Deji Adeyanju.
The group vowed to continue with the daily sit- out irrespective of the intimidation from the police.
