Buhari support group plots against TuFace-led anti-govt demonstration

A group, I stand with Buhari, has announced a counter protest against the planned nationwide anti-government demonstration organised by popular musician, Tuface Idibia.

The group announced its plan to march across the country in solidarity with President Muhammadu Buhari, on the same date as the Tuface-led events.

In a Facebook post Friday, the group said: “#iStandWithBuhari Nationwide Solidarity Rally 5th & 6th February, 2017Join Us & Show Them We Support Our President In His Efforts To Change The Wickedness Their Looters Brought On Nigerians details Out Tomorrow. We Must Kill Corruption, Or Corruption Will Kill”.

The group in a series of video posted on its page questioned the need for the TuFace march, urging Nigerians to come out and stand with President Buhari and not to protest.

The Nigeria police on Friday “strongly advised” TuFace to shelve his planned protest, citing “credible intelligence reports” that another group was planning a counter march on the same dates and at the same venues as the TuFace-led events.

Despite the controversies generated by the much-publicised protest, including earlier warning by the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, the ‘African Queen’ crooner has insisted on going ahead with the rally and has provided reasons for it.

Speaking at a press conference in Lagos on Tuesday, the singer said the protest would kick off on Monday from the National Stadium, Surulere in Lagos at 8 a.m. and terminate at the National Theatre in Iganmuarea of the city.

Defending his choice of venues, the singer said “The National Theatre and National Stadium are the two national icons that epitomise our decline as a nation.”

2face also called on Nigerians to henceforth speak out about the issues affecting them and also share them via videos, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and SMS to 0902-355-5335.

    This protest must go as schedule because Nigerians are suffering,there is hunger in the land and we must not continue this way.Let Buhari APC led govt show us what Nigerians have benefited from his govt since inception.What are their achievement since May 29, 2015 to date.How many people have they affected positively across the 6 Geo-political region? We are tired of his govt and his policies.We don’t need a soothsayer to tell us they are fighting the insurgency and corruption.Which insurgency are they fighting?Is it the one the North created to scuttle the administration of Jonathan? I can’t believe that a president from the North will be saying he has achieved because he is fighting Boko Haram,which region formed or created Boko Haram in the first place?Is it the South that formed Boko Haram group?Certainly not; Boko Haram was formed to ensure power return to the North which they eventually achieved. So when somebody is saying he is fighting Boko Haram insurgency a laugh because they are fighting what they created themselves.The issue of corruption fight was meaningful and a welcome development but later turned to be a mirage because all the corrupt politicians who have embezzled in one way or the other are decamping to APC for cover and protection.Is this how to fight corruption? If you are not in APC you are in trouble but once you join the wagon you become a saint.In-fact the rate at which our politicians are cross carpeting from PDP to APC is alarming and worrisome. When they believe that once you join the wagon you are protected and you can continue to enjoy your loot.You can only be charged and be prosecuted only if you are not in APC evil party.The case of Babachir lawal who used 270million to cut ordinary grasses at the IDP Camp where majority of the people there are suffering and hungry is being about to be covered by the presidency.Is this how to fight corruption? Who is fooling who?Who are they deceiving? They can only deceive their party member and those illiterates out there who don’t know their right from their left.They covered and protected corruption as if they are saints.This govt is also corrupt and clueless.How much is a litre of kerosene now?How much do we fill our gas cylinder now?How much is a bag of rice now?How much is commodity in the market now?The transportation cost is so high that its affecting the workers with little or small salary. Many family are withdrawing their children from schools because they cannot afford the school fees.Things have gone bad seriously and some group of blind supporters are out there to counter the masses rally.This is shameful and unthinkable. How can we develop and move forward as a nation.There is need to come together and form a coalition and fight this evil and self centred people at the helm of affair may be things can be changed for better for the masses.Any group counter against 2baba protest is an enemy of progress and God will visit them in due time.

    Imam Imam Imam, has it come to this? You once threatened that the blood of dogs and baboons would soak the streets. Why o Imam must your country turn to this? You remind us of your popular saying – winner take all. For you this is dream come through. Today the only demonstrations/protests the army and police can allow are Pro Bohari rallies. You have killed so many Shiite protesters, you have killed so many Igbo protesters. You are planning to kill the young musician and his friends planning to protest your recession, hunger and injustice in your government. Imam look inward.

    We missed an informed sensitive and anti corruption music mogul, Fela Anikulapo Kuti who would have given Buhari’s present administration the most deserving support with his heart beating worldwide waves of musical communication.

    These móróns will only get themselves killed for nothing. Why don’t they march on another day? But the police would be most irresponsible if it allowed both groups to match on the same day and same routes.

    Buhari was a big mistake.. I regret the day i voted this incompetent president. A president that left a whole country to suffer for over 6 months of fuel scarcity. That was the point i knew Buhari is a huge mistake after Jonathan.. wasted another 6 months to give us the worst set of ministers.. holding closed door meetings with saraki and dogara , what a waste of time and space. the corruption fight is the worst i have seen , I believe Obasanjo was a better president. Look at the way they are killing police officers in Rivers state.. what a shame..Please let him get out of that sit. He is not competent at all.
