Nigerians are currently expressing on social media, their readiness to hit the streets on June 12 to protest raging insecurity in the country and other perceived failures of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
This seems to have followed a tweet by an activist and online newspaper published, Omoyele Sowore – @Yelesowore, which reads,“Good morning oppressed citizens! We urge you to please join us nationwide/worldwide to engage in massive street action on June 12 2021. #June12Protest #BuhariMustGo #Revolutionnow”
In their responses, many Nigerians have taken to Twitter to indicate their interest to be part of the demonstration.
