Today, millions of Nigerians went about their businesses: work, seeking employment, attending school/college and caring for their families, by doing so, the millions defended our country’s hard-won democratic rights – by ignoring calls on social media to join a phantom ‘revolution. – Buhari
RDNews brings you an accurate, well-detailed and objective report on various activities ranging from politics, entertainment, education, health, economy, religion and other spheres of life.
The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has appreciated all Nigerians, who shunned the revolution protest slated for Monday, August 5th, 2019 and proceeded with their normal daily activities.
Malam Garba Shehu revealed this fearful expression, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, through a statement in Abuja on Monday.
According to him, “the president was humbled by the support,” not for himself, or the governing party – but for the democratic values of modern-day Nigeria.”
Though I knew a few hundred persons, who after their own interest, participated in the protest against the country progress.
He was quoted saying, “Today, millions of Nigerians went about their businesses: work, seeking employment, attending school/college and caring for their families.
“By doing so, the millions defended our country’s hard-won democratic rights – by ignoring calls on social media to join a phantom ‘revolution.’
“There were a few hundred persons today who, for their own reasons, decided to act upon the demands of a group calling itself Global Coalition for Security and Democracy in Nigeria, which went on social media to ask everyday Nigerians to overthrow the government they only elected some six months ago.

“The President is humbled by the support – not for himself, or the governing party – but for the democratic values of modern-day Nigeria through the wisdom of those millions of citizens who preferred democracy and decided not to undermine an elected government.
“Today, joining those millions of Nigerians was not only the President and governing party at the federal level but many state governments from the opposition, trade unions, civil society organisations, media and NGOs with focus on freedom of speech.
“All have, rightly, united in protecting Nigeria’s young democracy and the rights of all to elect leaders and lawmakers.
“The Global Coalition for Security and Democracy in Nigeria’s attempt to incite citizens into a revolution against their own democratic rights and interests has failed – as will all attempts to take away from the people their hard-won rights and freedom to choose who leads their country.”
