The National Consultative Front (NCF) has called on Nigerians to prepare themselves for nationwide mass action against the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
The group made this known in a statement on Sunday jointly signed by a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Umar Na’Abba, and a former presidential candidate, Prof Pat Utomi.
The NCF stated that the mass action is against corruption, hunger, abuse of public trust and insecurity.
They accused President Buhari of allowing some unelected proxies and power traders to run the country.
“In view of the various unimaginable melodrama and macabre dance of corruption and chaos within the top echelon of the Nigerian political leadership and government, which has been exposing the cause of high-level insecurity and hunger in the country today,” NCF said.
The group noted that it became imperative for the citizens to halt the festering rot and what it described as ‘political coronavirus’ in the Buhari-led government.
“Consequently, all of us as citizens of conscience should have no choice but to urgently rise in unison to utilize our collective power as a vast majority of united citizens capable of chasing out that clique of ruinous political cartel ravaging our commonwealth enabled by their self-serving capture of our Government and State, now being ruthlessly deployed to milking us to stupor, while riding roughshod on us as a people,” it said.
The NCF said it will be flagging off its zonal political structures in the six geo-political zones of the country and also set up its strategic operational committees in order to strengthen its budding national consultations and mobilisation towards a historic nationwide political resistance programme.
