- Controversial entertainer Charly Boy has been leading the Our Mumu Don Do protest against the stay of President Muhammadu Buhari outside Nigeria on medical grounds
- The protesters are asking Buhari to resign or resume work since he has spent 90 days outside the country
- Area Fada as he is fondly called explains that he is ready to die for the good of Nigeria after he collapsed in Abuja from tear gas choking him
66-year-old controversial entertainer and social activist Charly Boy has said he is ready to lay down his life for Nigeria.
NAIJ.com reported that the convener of the Our Mumu Don Do protest which has been calling for the resignation or resumption to work of President Buhari was tear-gassed by the police during the protest which is holding in Abuja.
Meanwhile, many celebrities have left Charly Boy and his protesters to it except Nollywood actor Jim Iyke. The activist also known as Area Fada spoke on artists shunning his protest. He said:
“The bible says, many are called but few are chosen. If there are only two of us, we are going to keep insisting on the right thing. Don’t forget, I did not start this movement.
It was some young Nigerians that started it and they roped me into it. My job as an Area Fada is to guide them because what was missing in the past which made people claim that the youths have gone to sleep is that they did not have the right leadership.
I have come out to say that I would take a bullet on their behalf because I feel and believe that this country would only be saved by some exceptional youths. If you look at the trend, the youths in this country have really done Nigeria proud, especially when they are abroad.
There are so many Nigerians in Harvard Business School, Nigerian doctors have helped to shape the American health care system; I can go on. So why is it that in our own country, the youths do not have any future?"
He stated further that: "It is because the terrain is polluted and infected by all these criminals. I am happy that I am making that connection with some exceptional youths and I am proud to say that it is just a question of time. We are not looking for a crowd.
Like I always say, the people holding Nigeria at its jugular, those who are responsible for the excruciating poverty Nigerians are going through are not up to 50. My own equation is that the people that would rescue this country may not be up to 20 despite the fact that they would try and kill some or throw tear gas at them.”
Meanwhile, as the 'Our Mumu Don Do' protest was ongoing on the pro-Buhari protesters arrived the scene in eight buses and there was almost between confrontation of the two groups. While the 'Our Mumu Don Do' protesters are calling on the president to resume work or resign if his health is disturbing him, the pro-Buhari group says they are happy with the president.
