Commotion at Villa as protesters reject ‘selected few’ from meeting Osinbajo

There was commotion at villa gate on Thursday as Labour unions’ protesters rejected the call that only 20 selected members should meet with Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, insisting that all the protesters should be allowed to meet the acting president.


One of the protesters, Annabel who spoke to Daily trust said she does not buy into the arrangement. 


"Why will they allow us to March down here and abandoned us, if they wanted only 20 people they should have been the one to March," she said

The leaders of the Labour unions had asked the protesters to wait behind while 20 selected people go in to the Villa to present their demands to the acting president.  This enraged the protesters and led to a chorus of "we no go gree".              

The protesters agreed to the request after persuasion from the labour leaders.    

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) are staging a protest rally over the state of the nation.

The protest code named ‘national day of action against orruption and for good governance’ is holding simultaneously in Abuja and Lagos.
