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.
“It also comes at a time when there is an unprecedented dictatorial-style crackdown on free speech, dissent, activism, journalism and the right to associate and congregate peacefully and protest.
“CORE is therefore mobilising all Nigerians to protest and demand action on the following: The reversal of the hike in the price of Premium Motor Spirit from N148 to N151. An end to state-supervised and approved impunity under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“The sacking of all service chiefs in the country due to their proven incompetence in finding a lasting solution to the Boko Haram insurgency which has claimed and is still claiming the life of Nigerians daily. Respect for the rule of law, court orders and due process which has been bastardised in a corrupt attempt to silence dissent.
