Youths Protest In Kaduna, Asks Buhari To Sack Kyari & Daura
Yesterday Monday, was a hot day in Kaduna, as some youths staged a peaceful protest where they asked President Muhannadu Buhari to sack his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari and remove his uncle, Mamman Daura from the Presidency.
The youths said they were protesting due to the increasing state of insecurity in northern Nigeria, and blamed President Buhari for being unable to solve the security situation because he was surrounded by Kyari and Daura, whom they referred to as Presidency Cabal. They also accused the duo of being behind Buhari’s low performance in his previous administration.
The youths carried banners and placards with inscription such as; ‘we need security in Northern Nigeria’, ‘Abba Kyari must go’ and ‘Mamman Daura must go’ among others. As they matched straight to the Kaduna residence of Mamman Daura, chanting and singing, ‘Abba Kyari must go’, ‘Mamman Daura must go’.
The leader of the protesting youths, Auwal Suleiman, who spoke to the media said they were concerned over the increasing rate of insecurity in Zamfara, Kaduna State, Katsina and Adamawa States, etc. “Today in Northern Nigeria, we cannot go to our farms freely for fear of being kidnapped for ransom. That is if you are lucky not to be killed by bandits. Imagine what is happening in Zamfara, Katsina, Kaduna and other parts of this country where insecurity is rampant. Most youth are unemployed, and yet these so called cabals that surrounded the president refused to allow him to work for the ordinary people that voted for the president. This is why we’re out here to show our anger and to call on people like his Chief of Staff Abba Kyari, Mamman Daura, and others to leave the president alone to work for Nigerians,” he said.
Jibril Abdullahi, leader of Concerned Youths of Kaduna, also said that majority of Northern Youth are unemployed, as he called on the President to create an avenue for youths to be self-dependent. He also said that without security there is no way the youth will engage in farming.
