Enough is Enough, (EiE) Nigeria, a youth-driven civil society group, which served as the “official partner” of Tuface Idibia’s planned nationwide protest, has issued a statement regarding the cancellation of the protest by the singer.
Tuface, in the early hours of the Sunday uploaded a video on Instagram in which he cited security concerns, and told his supporters that he had cancelled the protest to avoid loss of lives.
The One Voice marches were scheduled to hold in Abuja and Lagos on Monday and Tuesday February 6 and 7, 2017.
In reaction to the decision which apparently looks to be the singer’s sole opinion, EiE Nigeria took to its social media page to call on Nigerians to turn out for the planned protest.

The group noted that the protest will hold with or without the artiste.
Controversies have trailed the planned protest, following the decision of the Lagos Police to halt the rally.
