Following the backlash Omotola Jalade has been receiving on social media for saying that the country under Buhari and Osinbajo’s watch is hellish, other Nigerians in support of her comment have dug out throwback photos of when she joined thousands of Nigerians to protest in 2010.
Recall that Buhari’s social media aide, Bashir and some Nigerians accused the actress of not making clean money and also just speaking because money is no longer in circulation to reach her “as usual”.
In 2010, thousands of Nigerian youths led by Omotola Jalade, Chude Jideonwo, Charly Boy, Ovation Publisher Dele Momodu, and others hit the streets of Abuja to protest the long absence of the then Nigerian President, Musa Yar’Adua, and the poor state of the oil rich nation’s infrastructure including frequent power blackouts and acute shortage of fuel.
They marched under the coalition ‘Enough Is Enough’, and were prevented by state police from entering the premises of the National Assembly to vent their anger and frustrations with Assembly leaders.
The visibly angry youths with their placards sat in front of the first gate to the Assembly for a while before forcefully trying to gain entry into the complex but were again prevented by policemen.
The youths are demanding that President Yar’Adua who is gravely ill should resign from office or be impeached by the National Assembly.
