The leader of the groups, Comrade Waheed Lawal while addressing newsmen said, this protest becomes imperative because of the level of injustice and maladministration of Presidents Buhari.

“I urge the residents of the state to rise against injustice, killings and sad news in the country.

“Despite the richness of Nigeria in natural resources and fertile land, our economy still suffers greatly. Poor leadership has put the country in the wrong direction leading to untold hardship among the masses. We are out today to sensitise the resident of Osun to always seek better Nigeria.”
