N-Power Volunteers Protest To Hold 5th September 2020 at NTA Complex Abuja
Time – 10 am.
Theme – PERMANENCY is irreversible
It is now crystal clear, the Humanitarian Minister had been dishing promises without fulfilling any.
The Minister, Sadiya Umar had advised N-Power volunteers to exercise more patience and await the result of the efforts being made by the Honorable Minister who is currently engaging various MDAs including the CBN and the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to ensure that the eligible exited N-Power beneficiaries are transited to government progammes or even employment where available.
She has directed Focal Persons of NSIPs in all the states to submit an updated list and details of the exited N-Power volunteers that are interested in participating in the transition plans of the ministry.
This absorption into MDAs may be a plot to divert N-Power volunteers’ attention from the struggle.
Contrary to this, N-Power volunteers are warning-up for a MEGA PROTEST, tagged “Master of All Protest” (MAP), would take place on the 5th of September 2020.
This will facilitate fulfilment of all promises of absorption if it were possible. But without this nothing can be done because the entire ministry is hard to believe.
The SIT-IN IN ABUJA Protest held 26th of August 2020, was a huge success and a stepping stone for further protests.
Disengaged N-Power volunteers from the 36 states and the FCT took to Abuja city by surprise for a SIT-IN IN ABUJA protest. A protest that will last till October 2020.
N-Power volunteers have already sought police permission and injunction to press on with their demands.
The “SIT-IN IN ABUJA” protest will be a long and precise one, not until the president addresses the situation himself, disengaged N-Power volunteers will not step an inch out of the Federal Capital Territory, protesting N-Power volunteers are to take along with them blankets, stoves, cooking utensils and buckets.
