APC, Bola Tinubu supporters storm Abuja streets, protest for interim government

The supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Monday, stormed the streets of Abuja in protest against calls for an interim government after President Muhammadu Buhari’s exit on May 29.

The protesters under the auspices of The Natives staged what they termed as a peaceful walk, just as they cautioned opposition parties and their nominees in Nigeria to kill the thought of an interim government when a democratic government had been elected and was waiting to be sworn in.

According to the Natives, the spirit of June 12 was still hovering around Nigeria striving for justice on the stolen mandate of the late Moshood Kashimawo Abiola, hence there must not be a repeat of such injustice.

The pro-Tinubu supporters, who marched to the national headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) also declared support for the continued stay in office of the commission’s chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu.

Supreme Leader of the Natives, Smart Edwards, who led the protest, implored the international community and all Nigerians of all tribes and races to allow democracy to grow by declaring their support for the president-elect.

He said, “No mandate was stolen. It was either you (opposition parties) did not network with your people and Nigerians well, or your people did anti-party against you. Today we have witnessed PDP suspending its National Chairman, the man who campaigned for the party, that’s also a democracy.
