A civil society organisation, Coalition for Revolution (CORE) has described the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari as a full-blown pandemic, saying there is a need for Nigerians to ”quarantine” bad leadership.
The group, in a statement on Friday, declared August 5, 2021, the commencement date of protests against bad leadership in Nigeria.
CORE listed a series of demands which it said are non-negotiable and urged Nigerians to troop out to demand a better Nigeria.
The statement reads in part: “Join the August 5 nationwide protests against corruption and tyranny in Nigeria. Enough is enough!
“You’re Shiites, IPOB, ODUDUWA, #ENDSARS, students, market men and women or citizens who can’t cope with rising food prices, workers whose miserable salaries are cut in half, people whose businesses have been ruined by economic mismanagement, farmers whose farmlands have been destroyed…come out on August 5, 2021.
“It will be a total lockdown at home and abroad. Shops, schools, businesses are advised to observe strict closures. Only essential services will be allowed.
”Let the world know we can’t continue like this anymore!”
