Senator Shehu said while in opposition the APC embarked on series of peaceful protests during the administrations of former Presidents Goodluck Jonathan and Olusegun Obasanjo and even military dictatorship, hence, “lacks moral right to stop others by any means.”

“Protest is fundamental right in a democracy. In fact, citizens should be encouraged to organise peaceful protest because it is a democratic channel through which they can express their strong opinion against policy, programme or action taken by government.

“A society that opposes violence must encourage the culture of peaceful protest. It is by encouraging people to peaceful protest that you can discourage them from going into violence,” he said.

“Nobody needs police permission to organise a protest. Police should simply be informed to organise protection for anybody who wants to protest.

We led the protest against Jonathan. We led the protest against Obasanjo and even against military dictatorship here,” Sani recalled.
