The Coalition for Revolution has urged Nigerians to participate in a peaceful protest against the anti-people policies of the Nigerian Government on October 1, 2020.

The group in a statement on Thursday also called for the immediate resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to the group, protests will take place in all states across Nigeria as well as in London, Sweden, The Netherlands, United States, Canada and Germany.

“These harsh policies that have bored a burdensome hole into the pockets of the Nigerian people are coming at a time when citizens are recovering from the adverse effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, a global health crisis that was also mismanaged by the Buhari’s government further plunging already struggling citizens into deeper financial problems.

CORE also demanded the unconditional release of Shiek Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, and his wife, Zeenat.

“An end to the systemic genocide of Christians and killings of other Nigerians in Southern Kaduna, Plateau State, Benue State and Taraba State by the Fulani militia.”
