The UK police has granted a series of permits to Nigerians in London who are set to embark on a procession and night vigil against the continued stay of President Muhammadu Buhari in “Abuja House” in London.
A UK-based Nigerian, Chidi Cali, told Saharareporters that the London Metropolitan police granted their group express permission to engage in a #Resumeorresign which will be held in front of the Abuja House in London starting from today (Friday) at 3 PM London time.
According to him, the protest will take place on Friday, August 18 at 5 pm and Saturday, August 19, at 8:30 at 2, Campden Hill, Kensington W8 7AD.
He said the protest would be a candlelight vigil and procession that will last several hours to force President Muhammadu Buhari to either resume to work in Nigeria or resign as Nigeria’s President.
Chidi also promised that a 7-day sit-out will be undertaken as a follow-up if President Buhari refuses to vacate the official Nigerian property in London to return to work as soon as possible.
The broad permit granted the group includes suspension of parking in the vicinity of the area as well and protective police barricades throughout the duration of the protest.
