Lawyer and Human Right Activist, Femi Falana has said the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has brought depression and hardship upon Nigerians.

Falana issued this statement at the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Protest in Lagos on Tuesday.

The Lawyer said that this government’s administration is not what the people voted for. He said the regime had caused hardship, making the standards of living for the common people get worse day by day.

“The living standards of our people are getting worse by the day. We didn’t vote for a regime to cause hardship in Nigeria and that is what is going on,” Falana said.

He mentioned that terrorism, depression, and hardship had taken over the country.

He also referred to the President’s statement saying he is eager to step down from office.

“Recession has taken over our country, but President Buhari is junketing all over the world. He’s already told Nigerians that he’s tired and he’s anxious to go home. We are therefore saying today that Buhari must go.”

He showed his full support for the ongoing ASUU strike saying that the protest will be a child’s play compared to what happened in the End SARS protest.

“For the lecturers in our tertiary institutions and other workers, we are fully with you. Like our comrades have said, this is a warning protest, #EndSars protest will be a child’s play because we’re tired and frustrated and disenchanted. And I join our comrades in saying that enough is enough.”

“Don’t let them deceive you by saying there is no money in our country. It’s a lie.”

“We reject the dubious economic programmes of this regime. We reject the neoliberal policy of this regime. We can’t continue promoting poverty in the midst of plenty.”
