It’s 101 days since President Buhari stepped foot on our shores. His MIA status has been a sore point for many NIgerian, sparking “anti-Buhari” protests and counter protests by the Pro-Buhari group. However, after 10 days, the #ResumeorResign protesters have had to suspend their daily sit-outs at the Unity Fountain, after becoming targets of police wrath. Their last ditch effort at Wuse Market almost saw Charly Boy, co-convener of #ResumeorResign, lynched.
Political commentator and Host of Politricks with KO has a few observations for the #ResumeorResign conveners, Twitter/Social media overlords and Nigerian activists in general. He’d like for them to be cautious and strategic with their action plans.
Arrogance of today's activists is unbelievable, they misread the mood of the people. They take their anger as an excuse to be irresponsible

I read a piece the other day in which someone, likely from Dogara's office, gushed over how the Speaker hushed motions to discuss Buhari. https://t.co/2ejx7RQBuH

Most politicians are struggling with one ailment or the other, they are all sick. Their eyes are fixed at the center, review kini?

We most time misread our "armchair" pundit role; thinking the average marketfolks don't guage the polity at all. But do know what they want.

That's the strange part. People are disappointed but still love Buhari and Osinbajo in some parts of Nigeria https://t.co/WeQkCzdtIR
