#IStandWithNigeria protesters have given the Federal government till May 29 2017 to meet its demands otherwise “the agitations will be louder and more intense.”

In a statement released by Enough is Enough Nigeria Group and signed by “Nigerian Citizens,” on Monday, protesters called on the government to address its demands: Transparency, Security, Cost of Government, Social Justice and Corruption, and Power.

Read the statement below:

Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN
Acting President & Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces
Federal Republic of Nigeria
Presidential Villa
Nigerians Speak in One Voice That This Administration Has Failed to Deliver on Its Promises
Your Excellency,
In the words of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Nigeria’s First Prime Minister, ‘the future of this vast country must depend, in the main, on the efforts of ourselves to help ourselves.’
Since the idea of a protest was muted a few weeks ago and a call to action was given for Nigerians to share their challenges and concerns via social media and SMS, we have received hundreds of text messages, Whatsapp messages; thousands of comments via various social media platforms and millions of engagements through various hashtags.
The messages paint a clear picture of hardship across the country. Nigerians are facing difficult economic challenges and do not see any end in sight. Our standards of living

Buhari is hale & hearty; I just spoke wth him - Osinbajo

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has said he was not under any kind of pressure to resign, saying he ran for his office on the same electoral ticket with President Muhammadu Buhari and that Buhari is hale, hearty.

He also said that the President was hale and hearty contrary to speculations that he was critical ill or even dead.

Osinbajo spoke with State House correspondents shortly after a closed door meeting with the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Oyegun, the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters in Vice President’s Office, Sen. Babafemi Ojudu and the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora Matters, Hon. Abike Dabire at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Monday.

VP Osinbajo Osinbajo said that the idea of asking him to resign his office was uncalled for and unfounded as the people of Nigeria who voted for him hadn’t asked him to resign.

Revealing that he had a long telephone conversation with the President who is currently on a medical leave in London, United Kingdom, Monday afternoon, Osinbajo stated that the President was well and alive. He added that he briefed the president on the state of the nation including the on-going mass protests in the country.

Asked to speak on the nature of President’s illness, the Acting President said that the information was only at the discretion of the President to disclose. He said:
“I am not under no pressure to resign. I was voted for by the people of this nation, myself and Mr President and so the people of this nation have not asked us to resign. 
I am absolutely not under any pressure whatsoever. The truth is that there has been no pressure from any source asking me to resign “The President is hale and hearty. I spoke to the President just this afternoon and we had a long conversation. 
He was interested in knowing about the budget process and how far we have gone and the meeting today with the private sector and the economic recovery growth plan and I informed him about the protest march and feedback about what people are saying about the economy. He is in good shape. 
Just like he said in his letter to the National Assembly, he needs to go for a cycle of tests and once he sees the test results and gets medical advice, we expect him very soon. “I think that the health status of Mr President is an issue that only Mr President would discuss at the appropriate time. 
Again he is running test and all of that, before you will be able to determine your health status, you must be able to say this is my health status, do the test my doctors have advised me to do and will wait for the outcome of the tests and know my status.”
Shortly after the interview with Journalists, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal was seen walking into the Office of the Acting President.

His mission was not known as at press time.

It will be recalled that President Buhari left the shores of Nigeria on January 19, 2017 for London on a medical vacation. He was due to return to his duty post on Monday, February 6 but failed to do so, citing more medical laboratory tests as reasons for his continued stay abroad.

A press statement by his Media Aide, Mr. Femi Adesina on Sunday that announced the extension did not however give any specific date of his return, a development which many Nigerians feel was unconstitutional and unbecoming of a President of a country.

Yellow buses will no longer ply Lagos roads – Ambode

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode  has said plans are afoot to remove yellow buses popularly known as Danfo from Lagos roads for a world class mass transportation system that would facilitate ease of movement within the city.

Speaking at the 14th Annual Lecture of the Centre for Values in Leadership (CVL) held at Muson Centre in Onikan with the theme: “Living Well Together, Tomorrow: The Challenge Of Africa’s Future Cities,” Governor Ambode admitted that the present connectivity mode in Lagos was not acceptable and befitting for a mega city, and as such a well-structured transportation mode would soon be put in place to address the challenge.
“When I wake up in the morning and see all these yellow buses and see Okada and all kinds of tricycles and then we claim we are a mega city, that is not true and we must first acknowledge that that is a faulty connectivity that we are running.
“Having accepted that, we have to look for the solution and that is why we want to banish yellow buses this year. We must address the issue of connectivity that makes people to move around with ease and that is where we are going.
“For instance, people going from Ikorodu to CMS have started leaving their cars at home because the buses are very convenient and so why can’t we do that for other places? Yes, we don’t have the money to do that but we can go to the capital market and then improve on the technology of collection of fares and that will encourage investors and then the city will change,” Governor Ambode said.
