Femi Fani-Kayode, has called for the removal of President Muhammadu Buhari, through a similar protest that led to the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS,
Fani-Kayode, a Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, noted that the EndSARS protests represent a watershed in the history of demonstrations in Nigeria.
He pointed out that this is the first time in the last 60 years, that Nigerians have recognised the fact that they can effect change and bring government to its knees, by taking to the streets in peaceful protests.
Fani-Kayode commended the courage of Nigerians who took it upon themselves to ensure that the government disbanded SARS by protesting, but urged “them to not just call for the ending of SARS, but also for the resignation of Buhari”.
Giving his reasons, he said that Buhari as Nigeria’s President, has no value for human life, and that innocent Nigerians have been brutally murdered under his watch, than at any other time in the history of the country, outside of the civil war.
For Fani-Kayode, President Buhari “has lost his legitimacy, and has no right to remain in power”.
His words: “#Endsars and #EndPoliceBrutality is just the beginning. #EndBuhari’s rule and the resignation of Buhari and his entire Govt. must be the final destination,” he tweeted.
“Many have been killed during this #Endsars demonstrations and they are still being killed. Their blood must not be allowed to have been shed in vain.
“Every drop of their blood must count for something and must act as a catalyst to a total change and overhaul of the entire system and a new beginning. It must lead to the end of Buhari’s sheer wickedness and impunity and it must usher in a new Nigeria where mass murder, ethnic cleansing, genocide, police brutality, tribal and religious divisions corruption, nepotism and impunity are things of the past.
“Take it or leave it, this may well be the beginning of our own Arab spring . And if it does not happen now it will surely happen later because the seeds of change and a peaceful and spiritual revolution have been planted.”
