Man Reportedly Climbs 50-Metre Pole to Protest Against Buhari


A 26-year-old undergraduate, simply identified as Nura Iliyasu, has reportedly mounted a 50-metre mast overlooking the Presidential Vila, Abuja, on a 7-day hunger-protest against what he called bad leadership by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

An eyewitness said Mr. Iliyasu also called on all opposition political parties to unite and produce a formidable candidate that will take over the leadership of the country and salvage the economy.

He told journalists: “Iliyasu said his one-man protest was against national indirection, pervasive hunger and starvation, un-godly generic poverty, youth redundancy and hopelessness, schizophrenic governance, souring foreign-exchange, high commodity prices; dysfunctional refineries and textile industries, elites medical tourism abroad, continued kidnappings and other negativities too numerous to mention.”

At press time, sources told DAILY POST that personnel of the Department of State Services, DSS, and the FCT Emergency Management Agency had convinced the frustrated man to come down from the 50metre mast.

“I won’t come down till Buhari steps down,” man says, after climbing mast in Asokoro, Abuja:📹
