A pressure group, Rebuild Nigeria Initiative said yesterday in Calabar that grassroots people from all the 774 local governments in Nigeria have commenced moves to stop the present occupier of Aso Rock by 2015.
Speaking during the inauguration of the State and local Government executive members of the group in the Cross River State capital, Calabar, the National Coordinator, Prince Hope Rek-Lawson said, Nigerians have the right to change their leaders who perform below expectations.
Speaking to a capacity crowd at Pyramid Hotel, Calabar, Mr. Lawson who said the group has membership across the 774 local governments and all the wards in Nigeria promised that the group will mobilize Nigerians across the country to use their votes and stop President Jonathan from returning in 2015.
“Nigerians have a right to know how they are being governed. Our generation is getting older, look I’m well over forty and we can’t afford to leave Nigeria as it is presently for our children” Lawson said.
Continuing, “2015 is the year when the mantle of leadership will change in Nigeria, when we will do away with the present occupier of Aso Rock. You will look among them and use your vote to tell them to step aside. Are we not tired of bad leadership? He asked to a thunderous response from the crowd.
“If they give you money to go and kill because of their personal ambitions, collect the money because it is your money but don’t kill, write to security agencies and copy the national security adviser”
The Cross River State Coordinator of Rebuild Nigeria Initiative, Mr. Castro Ezama in his acceptance remark canvassed for employment for the people and youths of Cross River State saying “We are tired of the look warm attitude of our leaders who promise and fail. This time we will go out and negotiate for jobs for Cross River Youths. The time of preparation is gone, the time for performance is now.” Ezama said.
