Some members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, under the auspices of Concerned APC National Stakeholders (CANS) have urged President Muhammadu Buhari to terminate the appointment of his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.
The aggrieved group faulted the president’s chief of staff for allegedly hijacking the president’s administration, stressing that Nigerians elected Buhari and not Abba Kyari, Mamman Daura or Ismaila Funtua.
The protesters stormed Defense House, an extension of the Presidential Villa in Abuja, today, carrying placards with inscriptions such as: ‘Abba Kyari Must Go’, ‘PMB Must Take Charge of the Government’, ‘We Need Fresh Ideas Not Recycling Men and Women Who Have Spent Over 40 Years in Government’, and ‘Hardwork Must Be Rewarded’ among others.
The convener of the group, Dr Symeon Chilagorom, maintained that President Muhammadu Buhari should reclaim control of his government.
He said, “Fellow Nigerians, we are members of All Progressives Congress (APC) Concerned National Stakeholders, we invite you here today to drive our demands to the whole world, and particularly to President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Our demand is a simple one, the people of this country elected Muhammadu Buhari as their President, not Mamman Daura, not Ismaila Funtua, and definitely not Abba Kyari.
“Only President Buhari has our mandate to govern over the affairs of this nation, in light of that, we are simply asking that President Buhari should take back control of his government and begin to walk his talk during the campaign by delivering on the promises made.”
