Members of the #RevolutionNow Group have expressed dismay over the worsening security situation in the country as well as increased hunger and corruption and therefore demanded for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The group spoke during their protest march to the United States Embassy in Abuja over what they described as biting economic hardship in the country.
Similar protest also took place at Area one, Life Camp, Jabi, Kuje, Kwali, Kubwa and Lugbe.
Among those who were part of the protest include the group’s convener, Omoyele Sowore, #BringBackOurGirls activist, Aisha Yesufu, Ariyo Dare-Atoye, Henry Shield, Adebayo Raphael, Deji Adeyanju of Concerned Nigerians, among others.
They carried placards and banners with such inscriptions as ‘Buhari has failed,’ ‘Resign Now’, ‘Failed leadership has made Nigeria the poverty capital of the world,’ and ‘#RevolutionNow’.
They lamented that the situation in the country was getting worse by the day, adding that at 60, there was nothing to celebrate.
Yesufu in her remarks said Nigerians must make the nation work, stating that things were becoming unbearable.
Raphael said Nigerians have passed a vote of no confidence in the country’s political leadership, adding that “under Buhari, our economy is in shambles; under him, hardship has been redefined.”
Adeyanju said Nigerians were dissatisfied with the security and economic conditions in the country, stressing that “Nigeria is not working.”
He observed that soldiers, policemen, and other security agents have taken over the Unity Fountain, Maitama, where a rally was supposed to hold.
The activist appealed to the US to place a visa ban on the Director-General of the Department of State Services for clamping down on protesters in Osogbo.
