Jim Iyke Joins Protest Against President Buhari’s Prolonged Stay Abroad

Actor Jim Iyke recently joined protesters in the #ResumeorResign Protest against Nigerian President Buhari. He addressed the protesters saying it was wrong for the president to be out of the country for over 3 months when he was still a president. He went further to encourage Nigerians saying it was time for them to wake up and make the country great again.
In his words;
“What we are asking for is simple- we are not saying we individually came here to elevate our lives. We are saying collectively that ‘enough is enough. “You cannot a country from outside another country for 94 days. It is not possible. We have turned to the caricature of the world. Has anybody seen CNN of late? Did you not see what they had to say about our great nation. We were once the giant of Africa but now we are the joke of Africa. It is time we wake up.”

It so happen that he is not the first popular figure to join the protest. Popular veteran entertainer Charly Boy also took part in the protest and was attacked and left severely injured by anti riot policemen. He reported the attack thus;
“Before we knew it, they started with the water cannon. Then they tear-gassed us and set their dogs against us. Worried, I went to one of the policemen who was standing near me and asked him why they resorted to such action. Instead of responding to me, he suddenly raised the butt of his gun and hit me in the eye”
