Nigerians in diaspora under the aegis of the Global Coalition for Security and Democracy in Nigeria operated by the Nelson M46664 Human Rights Association of Hungary have urged Nigerians to declare a revolution without ammunition in Nigeria to protest the spate of insecurity and killings in the country.

The group, which is currently based in Budapest, Hungary, decried the continuing killings and insecurity in Nigeria, saying that it is absolutely unacceptable that a government should look the other way while innocent Nigerians are being killed by the day.

Global coordinator of the group, Mr. Frederick Odorige, in a statement, said   “from 1st May, all Nigerians should stay away from work places and embark on daily street protests,” because of the killings, adding, “ it will be foolish to celebrate Workers Day when your take home pay cannot take you home.”
The statement, however, advised that the protest should be peaceful and non-violent while “all shops, transportation, offices, and business places should be closed as from 1st May 2019.”

Odorige went further to state that the national motto of Nigeria of Faith, Unity and Progress has failed “due to bad governance because there is currently no unity, no faith in country, no peace and sadly, no progress.”

He said: “Section 14 subsection 2b of the Nigerian Constitution (As amended)
states that the welfare and security of the citizens shall be the primary purpose of the government. Any government that fails in providing either security or welfare has failed completely.”
