No fewer than 3,500 disengaged N-Power volunteers from the 36 states and the FCT have taken Abuja city by surprise for a SIT-IN ABUJA peaceful demonstration. A demonstration that will stand the test of time.
The peaceful demonstration is scheduled to take place today 26th of August 2020 at the national Secretariat Abuja.
N-Power volunteers have already sought police permission and injunction to press on with their demand.
N-Power volunteers of the N-Power Scheme were recently disengaged by the government, a move not palatable for a country like Nigeria, with more than 60 million jobless youths.
Disengaged N-Power volunteers will be contesting and questioning the disengagement plan carried out by the Umar Sadiya Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.
This is not the first demonstration, two massive demonstrations, were already carried out, but the government claimed they have no funds to “permanent” or absorb N-Power volunteers, citing poor economy and the global pandemic as reasons.
The “SIT-IN IN ABUJA” demonstration 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.
N-Power volunteers for the demonstration took along blankets, stoves, cooking Utensils, Buckets, and Media outlets.
