The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has thrown his weight behind the nationwide protest to be led by popular musician, Innocent Idibia.
Recall that the pop singer, popularly known as 2face, had recently announced that he would be leading a nationwide protest, against the “obnoxious policies” implemented by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
In a swift reaction, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said those planning to stage the nationwide protest against the Buhari-led administration were those in pains over the outcome of the 2015 presidential election.
However, the outspoken governor who took to his twitter handle @GovAyoFayose said the organisers had his full backing to launch the protest which they said will be “massive”.
Fayose wrote: “To organisers of Feb. 5 “Enough is Enough” National Protest, you have my total support and I will be part of the protest.
“@2BABA, I stand with you and Nigerians on this protest. We must take our country back.
“@2BABA, let it be February 5, 6 or anyday, I will be part of any protest aimed at rescuing our country from dictatorship and nepotism.
“@official2baba Those who want to support of hunger & suffering can do so on Feb 5,we will protest against hunger & suffering on Feb 6.”
