#OccupyNass: A plot to destabilize the Senate

26 April 2016, 08:00

Abuja - A protest led by the Citizens United for Peace and Stability (CUPS) is set to take place on Tuesday, with approximately 50,000 Nigerians expected to be in attendance.

#OccupyNass, a movement to occupy “the National Assembly to reclaim Nigeria from the criminal Mafia cabal run by Bukola Saraki”, will see N500 million being used to destabilize the Senate and garner public support against corrupt politicians.

According to a Naij report, a phone conversation between two organizers of the event has revealed that a former Lagos Governor as well as a serving Governor are behind the protest action.

The serving Governor, who's name has been withheld, is said to have mobilized resources from colleagues in the northwest of the country to see to the needs of over 3000 protesters who will converge in Abuja for the event.

A key organizer of the event has revealed that a fundraising campaign on social media was used to create a false impression that the protest was citizen sponsored, with just over N1 million having been raised through the initiative.

The protest is alleged to have been spawned from long-standing issues regarding Seante President Bukola Saraki.

The initiative has drawn widespread reaction over social media, with many coming out in support of the protest.
