Disengaged volunteers from the 36 states and the FCT have taken Abuja city by surprise for a SIT-IN IN ABUJA protest. A protest that will last till October 2020
The Protest which took place 26th of August 2020 at the national Secretariat Abuja
Volunteers have already sort police permission and injunction to press on with their demand
Volunteers of the Npower programme were recently disengaged by the government, a move not palatable for a country like Nigeria, with more than 60 million jobless young persons
Disengaged 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 protest, two massive protests were already carried out, but the government claimed they have no money to settle volunteers, citing poor economy and the global pandemic as reasons
The “SIT-IN IN ABUJA” protest will be a long and precise one, not until the president addresses the situation himself, disengaged volunteers will not step an inch out of the Federal Capital territory Protesting Volunteers took along, for themselves blankets, stoves, cooking Utensils, Buckets, and Media outlets
