Charly Boy’s Group To Begin Daily Sit-Out On Tuesday

– An activist movement, #OurMumuDonDo, has explained why it will begin a daily sit-out beginning on Tuesday, October 17

– The group asked President Buhari to take action against some minters accused of corruption under his administration

– The activist movement, however, invited all Nigerians to participate in the protest in order to pressure the government to take action against corruption in the country

An activist movement, #OurMumuDonDo, on Sunday, October 15, announced its plans to begin a daily sit-out beginning on Tuesday, October 17.

Sahara Reporter reports the group is demanding that President Muhammadu Buhari take action against officials in his administration who have been accused of corruption.

The group, however, called attention to Ibe Kachikwu’s letter to Buhari alleging that Maikanti Baru, the group managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) had entered into contracts worth $26 billion without following due process.

The activist movement also highlighted other high-profile corruption cases that have surfaced over the past two years, including the $43m found in an Ikoyi apartment hidden by the suspended director of the national intelligence agency.

Other cases mentioned by the group include the mismanagement of funds for internally displaced persons in the northeast by the suspended Babachir Lawal, the secretary general of the federation, Senator Isah Missau’s allegation of bribery against Ibrahim Idris, the inspector general of police, and allegations of corrupt enrichment to the tune of N40bn against Kayode Fayemi, the minister of mines and steel development.

The activist organization decried Buhari’s indifference towards such serious allegations of corruption, especially given the anti-corruption platform on which he campaigned.

OurMumuDonDo: “During the course of these weighty allegations, Nigerians had expected that President Buhari would fulfill his campaign promises of fighting corruption by ensuring the swift investigation, arrest and prosecution of any person so suspected of looting the public treasury.

‘’We are, however, dismayed by the apathy displayed in this regard by the federal government.’’

The group insisted to commence a daily sit-out at Unity Fountain in Abuja starting at 9:00 a.m on Tuesday, October 17.

The group’s chairman, Charles Oputa, aka Charly Boy, invited all Nigerians to participate in the protest in order to pressure the government to take action against corruption.
