Nigerians in the United Kingdom have launched a new wave of protest aimed at compelling President Mohammadu Buhari to resume or resign.

One of the campaign leaders, Mr Tony Anyanwu told Irohinoodua on phone that his group have started a house-to-house campaign aimed at reawakening Nigerians on the need for the President to resume or resign.
He said the group has already secured police permit to hold the all night vigil.
“There will be a Night Vigil Resume or Resign protest at Abuja House in London This Friday 18th August.
The London Metropolitan police has given us the permit to go ahead,” another leader of the group stated
In fliers inviting Nigerians to join the protest, the organisers stated “If you are Nigerian and live in the UK, this is the time to make yourself available and save Nigeria.
Refreshments will be made available but if you want to come with your own that’s ok.”
The group said it is aware of plans by the All Progressive Congress, (APC) led government to bribe a rival group in London to disrupt the vigil.
The group however said it has secured police permit for the protest.
“We have been given parking permission too, so you can come with your car too.
Come with your jacket, or even camping bag. The temperature will go as low as 16 degrees”
It stated further “It’s an all night vigil. Come with your candle and torch or use the one on your phones.
We heard APC are trying to pay people £200 for a counter protest. Unfortunately for them the police are going to be there live for our protection.
Any counter protester will be arrested and prosecuted”
