Why ‘Return or Resign’ protest against president is unnecessary – Festus Keyamo


Popular lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria-designate, Festus Keyamo, has faulted the “Return or Resign” protest against President Muhammadu Buhari.

Keyamo, who described the protest as unpopular among Nigerians said protesters should have campaigned for the return and prosecution of looters and not an ill-President.

In a series of tweets on his social media, the popular lawyer wrote: “I commend the spirit of #ReturnOrResign, but the protest we need is #ReturnToFaceTrial of looters hibernating in London and other foreign cities.

“The failure of thousands of Nigerians to join #ReturnOrResign shows how unpopular the cause is, but they’ve a right to protest, even if it is solo.

“We cannot applaud those who didn’t launch #Resign against a President who smuggled cash of $9mill to South/A but did against one that’s ill.


“I’ll be more convinced to join protests calling for d resignation of a President on issues of corruption than one whose ‘offence’ is illness.”
