- A group has condemned the call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari by some #EndSARS protesters
- The National Democratic Front (NDF) said the call for the president's resignation by a faction of the protesters is politically motivated
- According to the group, the #EndSARS protest has been hijacked by some political jobbers
The National Democratic Front (NDF) has warned individuals and groups hiding under the guise of the #EndSARS protest to demand President Muhammadu Buhari's resignation to desist from such activity.
The NDF said the agenda of some of these groups and individuals cannot be acceptable.
The group also said that such agenda are politically motivated despite government's effort to meet the demands of the #EndSARS protesters.
According to NDF, the #EndSARS protest has been hijacked by "crisis entrepreneur" aiming to trigger the second phalanx of attack on the federal government by creating the impression of widespread discontent.
The secretary-general of the NDF, Abdulkadir Bolaji, said President Muhammadu Buhari's administration has impacted a huge number of Nigerian youths with his National Social Investment Programmes.
Bolaji also implored Nigerians joining the protest and calling for President Buhari's resignation to take a deeper look at what they are taking part in and ask critical questions.
He said it is lamentable some group have painted a picture of doom and gloom when in reality hardworking Nigerians are attesting to how the administration of President Buhari has revamped the economy and created opportunities for them. His words:
"Nigerians are today manufacturing products that are fast replacing those we used to import. Unless of course, the naysayers want to admit that they are proxies for the foreign companies that Nigerians are sending out of business."
The NDF further warned of the nefarious plan by a cabal to overthrow the government and impose an undemocratic rule on Nigerians.
The group said the plan was originally to have mid-level officers in the military plot a coup that will end in the opposition members forming an interim government.
Because the incumbent administration did not play into their hands the plan has now been tweaked to use the #EndSARS protest as a copycat Orange Revolution to use mob action to overthrow the government.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the inspector general of police, Muhammed Adamu, had announced a ban on the operatives of the FSARS unit of the police.
The IGP said that the officers of FSARS are prohibited from any road operations following the recent outcry and protest against police brutality by Nigerian units.
Also, the IGP in a swift move announced the replacement of FSARS with a news police unit, Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), on Tuesday, October 13.
He said the officers under the SWAT unit will begin their training at the different police tactical training institutions nationwide.
