“Our leaders don’t seem to care but only concerned about things that are not important – book launch and others. That is why we are here to call on this government that we are the electorates that send them over there. They are supposed to be our servants”.
“Constitution of Nigeria confers sovereignty on the people of this country. We have it not the leaders. They should wake up to their responsibilities and do what they have to do else, we will come here to protest and protest forever until they do what they have to do”.
“We don’t have to write to the police or anybody before we can come out and protest. This is a decision if the court and this is the provision of section 39 in the Constitution of Nigeria.”
Reacting to the development, the Kano State chairman of NUJ, Abbas Ibrahim said:
“What we know is that a group called Coalition of Northern Groups informed us of a press briefing where they wanted to use the Press Centre. But when our attention was drawn to it in the late hours of yesterday, we declined the permission and asked them to use another place. We have not granted permission to anybody to come here and start a protest.”
