Popular human rights activist, Deji Adeyanju has expressed that protest is the only language President Muhammadu Buhari understands.
He stated this while insisting that the planned June 12 protest by his group will hold.
He spoke on Friday morning, when he featured on AIT ‘Kakaaki.
Speaking during the program, Adeyanju slammed the President for saying that EndSARS protesters planned to remove him from office last October when the campaigners staged demonstrations against police brutality and extrajudicial killings.
Adeyanju pointed out that the aim of the protest by his group is not to topple the government.
He added that only the National Assembly has the powers to remove the President from office.
The activist said:
“The issues we are protesting against are very germane, they are about insecurity, internet shutdown, we don’t want another increment in fuel price because that is what they are planning. Again, the prices of food in the market is unbelievable.
“If the President of a nation can be saying that people who are were protesting wanted to remove him from office, it calls the question as to the kinds of people advising the President. If you have someone like (the Minister of Justice Abubakar) Malami around, you should expect the worst, you should expect those kinds of things that the President was saying.
“Are we (protesters), parliamentarians? Only the National Assembly can remove the President from office. So, the President should disabuse his mind from that. These sycophants in government are his real enemies, critics are not his enemies.
“We are not criticising to mock the government. We are not protesting because we like to protest; we will like to be in our homes, or our offices…
“The reason why we are doing it (protesting) is because this is the language that Buhari understands.”
