Breaking news: #BuhariMustGo protesters block the airport road in Abuja
The protest began in the early hours of Monday, June 21, 2021, along the expressway that leading into the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.
They (the protesters) have also erected bonfires on the busy expressway, bringing traffic to a halt.
Co-conveners of the protest stated in a statement signed by Baba Aye and Gbenga Komolafe said: “To mark the one year of #RevolutionNow Movement and re-launch the campaign for an end to unabating looting of public resources and revamping of the social and economic fabric of our country, the Coalition for Revolution will stage a massive demonstration of the collective anger and deprivation of Nigerian people taking off from two main points in Lagos and simultaneously across major cities in Nigeria.”
#RevolutionNow, a pet project of Sahara Reporters publisher and presidential candidate in the 2019 general elections, Omoyele Sowore.
Sowore, who was arrested in 2019 and 2021 for calling for nationwide protests against the Buhari administration–and who was also recently charged with incitement and treasonable felony–never misses the chance to protest against the Buhari administration.
Buhari, who won the second term in office in 2019 and has two more years before his constitutionally permissible two terms of eight years in office elapse in 2023.
