Resume or Resign: Nigerians to hold night vigil protest in London

By Gbenga Odunsi, Abuja

Nigerians in the United Kingdom have launched a new wave of protest aimed at compelling President Mohammadu Buhari to resume or resign.

AljazirahNigeria gathered that there will be a Night Vigil Resume or Resign protest at Abuja House in London this Friday 18th August.

In a statement signed by the group leader, Uwakwe-mangse Hanna, and made available to AljazirahNigeria, the group have started a house-to-house campaign aimed at reawakening Nigerians on the need for the President to resume or resign.

The group said it has already secured police permit to hold the all-night vigil.

In fliers inviting Nigerians to join the protest, the organisers stated “If you are Nigerian and live in the UK, this is the time to make yourself available and save Nigeria.

“Refreshments will be made available but if you want to come with your own that’s OK”.

“We have been given parking permission too, so you can come with your car too”.

“Come with your jacket, or even camping bag. The temperature will go as low as 16 degrees”

“Come with your candle and torch or use the one on your phones”.

The group said it is aware of plans by the All Progressive Congress, (APC) led government to bribe a rival group in London to disrupt the vigil but counter protesters will be arrested and charged for obstruction

“We heard APC are trying to pay people £200 for a counter protest. Unfortunately for them the police are going to be there live for our protection”.

President Muhammadu Buhari is currently recuperating at the Abuja House, London where he has been since the 7th of May.
