Conference of Civil Society of Nigeria (CCSN) has said that those who have been harassing President Muhammadu Buhari in the United Kingdom are embarrassing Nigeria and putting the country’s integrity into jeopardy.
The group said that the protest against him is ill-timed and needless, especially now that the nation is going through security challenges.
Speaking to newsmen today, April 3 in Abuja, Chairman of the Conference, Comrade Adams Otakwu, described the protest, purportedly aimed at making the President to cut short his medical trip, as “unpatriotic and a direct assault on the integrity of the entire country.
“The country is already going through a lot, especially with the menacing insecurity and COVID 19 pandemic, as such, the protest is ill-timed and needless.
“Our greatest need at the moment is close cooperation between citizens and government to surmount all challenges confronting the country.”
Otakwu called for collective action and commitment on the part of all citizens to fight the menaces of insecurity and underdevelopment
He expressed hope that Nigeria will rise to take her proper position of pride in the comity of nations and reassured the international community that Nigeria remains the best global investment destination.
