Convener of civil society organisation, Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, says there is no going back on the planned June 12 protest by his group.
Protest is the language understood by the President Buhari The activist spoke on Friday while featuring on AIT ‘Kakaaki’ programme.
Adeyanju flayed the President for saying that EndSARS protesters planned to remove him from office last October when the campaigners staged demonstrations against police brutality and extrajudicial killings.
When asked a question, Buhari had said, “This question was answered last year when there was the #EndSARS protest.
You remember the young people that wanted to march here and remove me?” Adeyanju said the aim of the protest by his group is not to topple the government, adding that only the National Assembly has the powers to remove the President from office.
The activist said, “The issues we are protesting against are very germane, they are about insecurity, internet shutdown, we don’t want another increment in fuel price because that is what they are planning.
Again, the prices of food in the market is unbelievable.” When asked whether the President truly understands protest as a language, Adeyanju said, “He does; when he was speaking yesterday (Thursday), he was speaking from a position of anger.
This (protest) is the language he understands, this is the language all politicians understands.
