Some protesters have taken to the streets of Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city to demand the exit of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The protest tagged #BuhariMustGo started in the early hours of Monday, with the protesters chanting ‘Buhari Must Go’ and anti-government slogans.
Some of the protesters said they could not even burn a tyre because there was no fuel to do so, which was a veiled reference to how Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as petrol had increased under the government of Buhari from N87 to about N160.
The protesters could be heard chanting: “Se democracy be this, se democracy be this, people dey die like flies, se democracy be this (Is this a democracy? People are dying like flies, is this a democracy)?
#BuhariMustGo slogan was started by the #RevolutionNow movement of human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore.
