The co-convener of Bring Back Our Girls movement, Aisha Yesufu, and former chairman of the Human Rights Commission, Chidi Odikalu, have led the #IStandWithBuhari anti-federal government protesters to the entrance of the Aso Rock presidential villa in Abuja.
According to TheCable News, they had earlier converged on Unity Fountain, where they were addressed by security personnel, and later made their way to the presidential villa where the protesters were prevented from gaining access into Aso Rock.
Despite that, they chanted anti-government songs, lamenting that “there is hardship in the land”.
Speaking at the entrance of the villa, Odinkalu said the current leaders have failed. “Our leaders have failed us. We are asking the government to fix energy, fight corruption. Those are our demands,” he said.
“We are reiterating that our leaders have failed us. Enough is enough!”
The pro-government group under the aegis of the Buhari Volunteer Network were also present at the villa.
Security agents ensured that there was no confrontation between both groups.
