Man Reportedly Climbs 50-metre Pole to Protest Against Buhari [VIDEO]

A 26-year-old undergraduate, simply identified as Nura Iliyasu, has reportedly mounted a 50-metre mast overlooking the Presidential Vila, Abuja, on a 7-day hunger-protest against what he called bad leadership by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

An eyewitness said Mr. Iliyasu also called on all opposition political parties to unite and produce a formidable candidate that will take over the leadership of the country and salvage the economy.

He told journalists: “Iliyasu said his one-man protest was against national indirection, pervasive hunger and starvation, un-godly generic poverty, youth redundancy and hopelessness, schizophrenic governance, souring foreign-exchange, high commodity prices; dysfunctional refineries and textile industries, elites medical tourism abroad, continued kidnappings and other negativities too numerous to mention.”
