A Lagos-based lawyer, Mr. Ebun Adegboruwa, has called on Nigerians to rise in protest against the cabal holding ailing President Muhammadu Buhari hostage by closing down the National Assembly, courts and other public offices, banks and preventing every official activity from holding. The lawyer made the call in a statement issued in Lagos on Friday. According to him, the protest should continue until the President and the cabal around him are forced out of power.
“I hereby call upon all the good people of Nigeria across the land to rise up to challenge the cabal that is holding Nigeria to ransom in the face of the apparent incapacity of the President to direct the affairs of Nigeria on account of his ill health. Let the National Assembly be shut down. Let all the courts be closed down. Let all the banks be locked up. Let all offices be closed, especially public offices. Let all schools, markets, hospitals and all such institutions, be shut down completely,” the statement said.
Titled “Let Us Paralyse The System”, the statement equally called for the suspension of all official activities until President Buhari agrees to resign and disengage himself
and his cabal from governance for the country to move forward.
Mr. Adegboruwa recalled that the country had gone through a similar experience under the late President Umaru Yar’Adua and should not be made to endure such again.
