A new group, Coalition of Civil Societies and Youth Groups, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari not to succumb to pressure to cut short his medical vacation in London or resign from office.
The Guardian reports that the group has also planned a street rally tagged “Remain and Restore” to be staged in Abuja and Lagos to show support for the President.The Co-ordinator of the newest group, Mr. Solomon Adodo, said those calling for the resignation of the President were only overheating the polity.
“We are all witnesses to how the polity is being overheated over none issues by persons whose contributions to the nation remain questionable. “These are the people that have attempted staging protests both in Abuja House in London and on the streets of Abuja.
“Their excuse for this show of shame is to ask for the absurd, they are demanding that President Muhammadu Buhari should cut short his medical vacation and immediately resume duties or resign.
“This charade is absurd for those of us who recall clearly that Nigerians prevailed on President Buhari to take time off and attend to his health while strictly following his doctors’ instruction,” Adodo stated.
