Man Who Climbed Mast To Protest Poor Economy Descends After 24 Hours, Blasts Buhari
The 28-year-old Nigerian man who climbed a telecommunications mast in Abuja yesterday to protest the poor economy in the country and the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari, has finally descended after 24 hours.
Nura Ilyasu, who was on 7-day hunger strike, upon descending from the mast at 11:25am on Thursday, September 13, said President Muhammadu Buhari did not deserve another term in office because of the “pervasive hunger and poverty” in the country.
He said, “My name is Nura Ilyasu. I am 28 years old. What I did is within the purview of the law. My human right is to protest peacefully and I never threatened my life or any other person
“What we are going through in this country is not from God. Some microscopic-view individuals hijacked all that God endowed Nigeria with for decent life, and we can’t continue like this.
“I climbed up for seven days hunger strike to protest the incompetence and cluelessness, to protest presidential impunity and general docility displayed by the masses. We can’t continue like this.
“Other competent candidates are there; even Saraki, Atiku, Kwankwaso, Tambuwal, Dankwambo and others. At least one of these (men) will make a good President.
“I don’t believe General Buhari deserves another four-year term in Nigeria because the pervasive hunger and poverty in Nigeria is inexplicable.”
Ilyasu assured that he does not suffer from any sort of mental disorder as has been suggested to have been the cause of his protest action. He was later taken away by security officials.
