During an interview with Channels TV this morning, Lauretta Onochie who is the Personal Assistant to President Buhari on Social Media, said the nationwide protest happening today has been hijacked by some members of the opposition party.
According to her, Governor Fayose and Deji Adeyanju of the PDP have declared their support for the protest. She says having such persons championing the protest makes it lose its credibility since they are of the party that massively wrecked the country during the last administration.
Onochie added that contrary to popular belief, singer 2face Idibia who was part of those championing today’s protest, was not bullied to cancel his support for the protest.
“I don’t think he has been bullied. He has a right to protest. Telling anyone not to protest will be like the way many of us raise children in our nation. You beat a child and deny the child the right to cry. A protest is a cry for help. If they want to go on with the protest, they can go on but what I frown at seriously is the notion that those who raped our nation massively are the ones pulling the strings behind the scene. They started with OccupyCentralBank which failed woefully. Nigerians shunned it. That were they were supposed to pick up” she said
