Group alerts police of plans to hold 10 million-man march for Buhari in Abuja
In the midst of the nationwide #EndSARS protests which have grounded business and government activities, a group ‘I stand With Buhari’, has officially informed the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu of its plans to hold a 10 million-man march in support of the President Muhammadu Buhari.
The group’s convener, Ogovhukwu Ezeaku expressed optimism of receiving a positive response from the police.
He said the march would take place at the Unity Fountain, Maitama, Abuja, on Wednesday.
“We have informed the police and I am sure there will be no problem.”
He also ruled out a possible clash with the #EndSARS protesters, saying the two groups had different objectives and as such have no reason to clash with each other.
Ezeaku said the march was conceived to show the President that the majority of Nigerians were still with him.
In a separate message on Facebook, the group stated that they would support the #EndSARS movement as long as it focuses on police excesses.
It said the moment the protesters called for Buhari’s resignation, they would also launch a counter-offensive.
“Many Buharists support #EndSARS but the moment you change the protest to any other silly hashtag you will know that we are 15 million strong!” it said.
