Protesting Youths Takes Over National Assembly, Demands Resignation Of Senate President

Protesting youths under the aegis of Occupy National Assembly have besieged the premises of the National Assembly, demanding the immediate resignation of the Senate President, Doctor Bukola Saraki.

The youths made up of various Civil Society Organisations and students, are also demanding that the federal lawmakers should immediately revisit the grey areas identified in the 2016 budget by President Muhammadu Buhari.

They also requested thirty-six Senators who have so far collected their own exotic jeeps to return them immediately or face the wrath of Nigerians.

The protesters marched from the Unity Fountain within the Central Area of Abuja to the National Assembly, forcing their way to the main gate, defiling all security network mounted by regular and riot police officers.

The youths forced the main gate closed thereby preventing staff, lawmakers and visitors from either entering or leaving the premises.

The protesters, armed with placards containing various inscriptions, vowed to seal off the National Assembly for the initial three days to see whether their demands would be met.

According to them, they would resume a permanent protest that would paralyse all activities in the National Assembly until all their demands are fully met.
