During their day four rally from Ikeja to the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota area of Lagos state, the activists told their colleagues who were scared of being associated with them to steer clear as they are planning a massive take over from President Muhammadu Buhari and his party.

Speaking on behalf of the comrades who were unhappy with the state of things in Nigeria, seven years after the demise of the late legal luminary, Abiodun Aremu, the national secretary of the Joint Action Front (JAF), described the present administration as a fraudulent one.
“The people united, can never be defeated,” the people chanted under the heavy rainfall. Photo: Emmanuel Osodi.
While addressing his colleagues at the park on a rainy Monday afternoon, Comrade Aremu noted that those present at the rally were the ones to liberate Nigeria from the present quagmire of challenges facing the country at the moment.

While pointing at the people with him on the podium where he was addressing others using the public address system, Aremu stated emphatically that “these are the people to liberate you from the present hardship of this economy.”

The radical comrade also added that every street will provide an eligible candidate who can be voted as Nigeria’s president, until a candidate can emerge to rule the nation and deliver the masses from the present hardship.

“If you are still thinking about the APC or PDP, please do not come here on the first of October. We are not the ones to send you away, but the spirit of late Gani will be evoked and you will be banished from our midst,” he added.
