Eminent human rights lawyer and activist, Ebun-olu Adegboruwa, has expressed support for the February 6 planned mass rally and protest being spearheaded by popular Nigerian musician, Tuface Idibia (2Baba), against protracted economic hardship and failure of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government to address critical social issues.

In a statement issued on Wednesday in Lagos, Adegboruwa recalled that “on January 16, 2017, the United Action for Democracy, declared the commencement of mass rallies all over the nation, as a way of mobilising against the sufferings, pains, hunger and corruption that has characterised the General Buhari administration.”

He said activists were joined by market women, artisans, beggars and commoners, to embark upon an open street protest from the NLC secretariat in Yaba, to Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota. At the end of that rally, UAD called on all Nigerians to take up their own protests in the churches, schools, mosques and all over the country.

Continuing, Adegboruwa said: “Tuface Idibia has seized that initiative to declare a mass rally for February 6, 2017.

“I endorse the rally and mass protest, whole heartedly and I urge all Nigerians to join in the protest, to make it peaceful and impactful.

“There is no doubt now again, that this government has ran out of ideas on what to do to rescue our collapsed economy, it has lost the battle against corruption, the very anchor of its administration, we still hear of Boko Haram devastating blows now and then, the whole nation is in gross darkness presently on account of absence of electricity, people are losing their jobs daily, students are forced to withdraw from school for lack of money to pay the fees and there is general poverty, all across our land.

“Tuface’s call is ripe for this moment and he should be encouraged and supported.”
