Protesters under the aegis of ”OurMumuDonDo” have vowed to continue to ask President Muhammadu Buhari to resume his functions as president or resign.
The group, in a statement issued by its Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Ezrel Tabiowo, said, despite the alleged intimidation they encountered in the hands of the police on Tuesday, they would not be discouraged.
The police were said to have harassed the members of the group during its sit-out protest on Tuesday in Abuja.
The group has been protesting against the prolonged absence of Buhari who has been in London attending to his health.
Members of the group also condemned the Senate for distancing itself from the protest.
The Senate was reported to have said that the protest was unnecessary and instead called for sustained prayer for Buhari and the country.
But, the leader of the protesters, Charles Oputa, said senate’s position was ”ridiculous”.
He said: ”I am disappointed in this country, but let it be known that no amount of intimidation on us by security agencies will deter us from demanding explanations from government.
”They must be accountable to Nigerians because they were elected into power by us, and on the basis that they will account for their actions.
”Also, to compound the mess Nigerians are in, it is disheartening for the Senate that ought to ask questions to be the very ones supporting such show of shame.
”They have failed Nigerians when most needed.”topics from
