The Senate has cautioned the sponsors and participants in the recent protests by a coalition of civil society organizations, operating under the aegis of #OurMumuDonDo who are demanding for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari over his medical vacation in the United Kingdom to stop heating up the polity with their unreasonable demands.
In a statement signed by its spokesman, Dr. Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, the Senate said that the protesters were only creating needless tension in the country and seeking to divert the attention of the Presidency from the economic and security issues which are being tackled with vigor.
The Senate noted that President Buhari complied with the provisions of the nation’s Constitution, which stipulated that he must hand over to the Vice President and inform the two chambers of the legislature about his medical vacation.
The Senate said that the sponsors are merely seeking cheap publicity at the expense of the peace of Nigeria. They said that the National Assembly is satisfied that there is no vacuum and that Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is providing the required leadership so there was no reason for the protests.
They advised all Nigerians to focus on praying for the safe return of the President. The Senate said that they are happy about the report by the Governors and party leaders who recently visited President Buhari in London adding that they know he will soon return to continue to provide leadership to the country and the rest of Africa.
“We, therefore, call on the protesters to stop all these demonstrations and let their sense of patriotism overshadow the zeal for activism by joining other Nigerians to pray for the President, the acting President, and Nigeria as a country at this critical period”, Abdullahi stated.
