Recalling that the Coalition of Revolution (CORE) has recently called on Nigerians to join its peaceful protest against bad governance in the country, the group has finally proceeded to stage the protest at the National Stadium in Lagos despite strong opposition from the Nigerian government.

In revealing the reason for the protest the group said the country had been “plunged into crises by bereft leadership who have turned the country into a business centre.”

CORE expressed its displeasure saying, the police were making move to create fear in the minds of the people by tagging the protest as a violent one while insisting that its demands are clear and glaring.

CORE added, “The police may have to explain to the world how the following listed demands would lead to a violent protest and treasonable felony like the Police PRO, DCP Frank Mba, stated in the statement issued yesterday. 

“We understand that this is the crude old trick of the state to create fear in the minds of the oppressed to delay their day of freedom. 

“But it is more glaring this time around that Nigerians have taken their destinies in their hands and are saying enough is enough to hardship, insecurity, insurgency, incessant killings, epileptic power supply, disrespect to court orders, blatant abuse of power and office as well as embarrassing corruption.”

In the early hour of the day, heavily armed policemen were seen at the national stadium keeping their watch on things as they wait for orders from above. However, the movement have earlier urged its members and all those who would be joining the protest to eschew all forms of violence and remain calm.

It said, “No protester should throw any object as little as stones or attack any security officials. We are aware of their intent to provoke the masses unduly by using undue tactics and sponsored agents, so as to give the protest a bad name. 

“We encourage all Nigerians to remain calm, as we are ready to fight these injustices to a logical conclusion. If you would come with water, make sure you come with water ONLY in plastic bottles. We say no to glass wares.”

It also noted that irrespective of the colour orange recognized as the insignia of the protest, everyone is free to come dressed in any colour.
