- Mr Ebun Adegboruwa has called for mass protest against President Muhammadu Buhari
- He also called for the suspension of all official activities until President Buhari agrees to resign
- The lawyer recalled that the country had gone through a similar experience under the late President Umaru Yar’Adua
In a statement titled “Let Us Paralyse The System”, Mr Ebun Adegboruwa, a Lagos-based lawyer has called on Nigerians to rise up in protest and force President Buhari out of power.
According to Sahara Reporters, Adegboruwa also called for the suspension of all official activities until President Buhari agrees to resign and disengage himself and his cabal from governance for the country to move forward.
He also called for the closure of the National Assembly, courts and other public offices, banks and preventing every official activity from holding.
The statement which was released on Friday May 5 read: “I hereby call upon all the good people of Nigeria across the land to rise up to challenge the cabal that is holding Nigeria to ransom, in the face of the apparent incapacity of the President to direct the affairs of Nigeria, on account of his ill health.”
“Let the National Assembly be shut down. Let all the courts be closed down. Let all the banks be locked up. Let all offices be closed, especially public offices. Let all schools, markets, hospitals and all such institutions, be shut down completely. Let there be TOTAL PARALYSIS.
“Let all official activities be suspended, until such a time that the president agrees to resign, and until the president disengages himself and his cabal from governance, in order to allow our nation Nigeria, move forward.
“We have traveled this route before and we are not prepared to go through the Yar’adua experience again.
“This is an urgent patriotic call upon all Nigerians to ACT NOW,” he said.
The lawyer recalled that the country had gone through a similar experience under the late President Umaru Yar’Adua and should not be made to endure such again.
However, today, Friday May 5, marks exactly seven years since the death of Nigeria's former president Umaru Yar’adua.
Yar’adua who was Nigeria’s president between May 29, 2007 and May 5, 2010 died at the Presidential Villa in Abuja after protracted illness.
The death of the former president changed the political landscape of the country at the time due to the fact that it was plagued by intrigues, uncertainty, dilemma and constitutional crisis.
Meanwhile, the major critics of the Buhari-led federal government are supporters of the Biafra agitation. Watch a NAIJ.com video of them speaking below:
