#ResumeOrResign Protest Not Sponsored By Any Politician – Charly Boy, Adeyanju
Conveners of the #ResumeOrResign Protest have dismissed allegations that former governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko and governor of Gombe State Ibrahim Dankwambo are funding the group’s anti-Buhari protests.
In a statement co-signed by Charly Boy and Deji Adeyanju on Monday, the group described the allegations as “lies and false assertions” and also said that the group was a creation of elements in the Buhari government who are aimed at disrupting the citizen movement.
“We have seen the lies and false assertions of a pro government group called Coalition for truth and Justice alleging that the Concerned Nigerians and the Our Mumu Don Do movement are being sponsored by a former governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko and governor of Gombe State Ibrahim Dankwambo,” the group said.
“The allegations are not just lies but are ridiculous and even embarrassing to those making the allegations.
“We understand that this is the handwork of detractors that are against our honest agitations for the Resumption or Resignation of President Buhari.
“Concerned Nigerians and Our Mumu Don Do Movement are not being sponsored by any body or government figure and will remain unsponsored.
“Our activities are in line with the provisions of the constitution and we will continue to carry out our daily sit out activities and not be intimidated.
“Furthermore, we will no longer respond to any prevalent distractions or consequent allegations by this administration but we will remain focus in demanding for the President to either Resume or Resign,” the statement added.
Recall that Mimiko had issued a statement disowning any association with the group, noting that President Buhari satisfied the constitutional procedure before proceeding on medical vacation in London.
