"Buhari Brought Ungodly Poverty On Nigerians" - Man Climbs Mast To Protest In Abuja

A young man has embarked on a seven-day hunger-protest against the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government as he climbed a mast near Aso Rock villa, Abuja

The 26-year-old undergraduate, identified as Nura Iliyasu, mounted a 50-metre mast overlooking the Presidential Vila, Abuja, on a 7-day hunger-protest against what he called bad leadership by the Buhari-led administration.

According to Daily Sun, while calling on the ‎opposition political parties to unite and produce a formidable candidate that will take over the leadership of the country and salvage the her, Iliyasu said his one-man protest was against “national indirection, pervasive hunger and starvation, un-godly generic poverty, youth redundancy and hopelessness.”

In addition, he is protesting against ‎what he termed “schizophrenic governance, souring foreign-exchange, high commodity prices; dysfunctional refineries and textile industries, elites medical tourism abroad; continued kidnappings and other negativities too numerous to mention.”
