Veteran Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke has joined the on going protest in Abuja alongside other Nigerians. According to Jim, it is not possible for President Buhari to run the country (Nigeria) from another country.
He also said Nigeria was once regarded as the ‘Giant Of Africa’ but now the country is known as the ‘Joke Of Africa’.
In his words “What we are asking for is simple- we are not saying we individually came here to elevate our lives. We are saying collectively that ‘enough is enough’.”
“You cannot a country from outside another country for 94 days. It is not possible. We have turned to the caricature of the world. Has anybody seen CNN of late? Did you not see what they had to say about our great nation. We were once the giant of Africa but now we are the joke of Africa. It is time we wake up.”
“We are saying to the president, either you resume or you resign”
Jim was not the only Nollywood celebrity present at the protest, veteran entertainer ,Charly Boy also took part in the protest and was attacked by anti -riot policemen.
