Nigerians secure permit to demonstrate in London

London, United Kingdom, will see Nigerians take to the streets on Friday to demonstrate against the removal of fuel subsidy. Malam Aminu, one of the contact persons for the London demonstration, said that the London Metropolitan Police has granted them the permit to hold a rally in London and will assist in controlling the crowd of about 1,000 people at the rally. Aminu said the demonstration will not just be about fuel subsidy removal but bad governance, government’s lack of seriousness in the fight against corruption and many other issues. He said the rally will hold at the London Charing Cross Station under the umbrella of Nigerian Students In Diaspora and Nigerians In Diaspora as well as foreign based NGOs. Participants are reportedly expected from various parts of the United Kingdom, including Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
