Tired over the silence on the health of President Muhammadu Buhari, a coalition of Civil Society Groups are set to begin a campaign to ensure he is booted out of office.
The group’s strategy is to begin a daily sit-out from Monday both in Abuja and in London.
Read full statement below:
We are inviting the general public, members of the press and Civil Society Organizations to our peaceful Daily Sit-Out that is scheduled to take place as follows;
August 7th, 0900am at the Unity Fountain Abuja.
August 7th, 11am at the Abuja House, London, United Kingdom.
All participants are expected to be at the venue before 0900am in Abuja and 11am in London to demand for President Muhammadu Buhari’s return to Nigeria and to office or his resignation on the ground of incapacity to execute his functions as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
You would recall that the president has been away from the country on a medical tourism in the United Kingdom since May 7th, 2017.
In line with the provisions of Section 40 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria which guarantees the right to peaceful assembly, and in exercise of that right, we have therefore, written a letter to the Police and other relevant security agencies requesting for protection as we exercise our fundamental right as enshrined in the constitution.
God Bless Nigeria.

And we say LOL.
