Protesters have accused Presidential aides of holding President Buhari captive.
The #resumeOrResign protesters who called on President Buhari to resign said it is time the president demonstrate his” touted integrity” because he is “incapacitated and can no longer rule the country.”
The group also reminded the president that he once asked late President Musa Yar’Adua to resign or be impeached over the latter’s state of health.
Deji Adeyanju, co-convener of the protest said President Buhari should leave office if he knew what integrity meant.
Adeyanju disclosed this on the fourth day of their protest in Abuja on Thursday August 10 at the Unity Fountain, Maitama.
He said: “We must tell the man (Buhari) who said he had integrity, the man who asked Yar’Adua to resign in 2010 when he was sick, the same thing he said to the late president is the same request we are making to him. A President that has been sick for 94 days would resign if he has integrity.”
He added that “posterity would be unkind to all those that visited Buhari but failed to advise him to do the right thing because of selfish reasons.”
A group of protesters supporting President Muhammadu Buhari have taken over the street of the federal capital Abuja, on the morning of Thursday, August 10.
The protesters who are members of the Coalition for Good Governance and Change Initiative group were spotted at Unity Fountain carrying placards and singing solidarity songs in support of the ailing president.
