I’ll No Longer Take Part In Street Protests Because They Don’t Work – Charly Boy
Convener of ‘urMumuDonDo Movement, Mr. Charles Oputa, a.k.a Charly Boy, on Friday said street protests by Nigerians over national issues cannot change political leaders at all levels.
Charly Boy made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.
He said that successive Nigerian political leaders had remained insensitive to the plight of ordinary Nigerians over the years and were not moved by such protests to hold them accountable.
He said he was, therefore, boycotting street protests over national issues, and urged advocates of good governance and patriotic Nigerians to resort to engaging the leaders through other non-violence avenues.
“I am not a professional protester, so now I have decided to use other means to hold leaders accountable,’’ he said.
He explained that he was leading an advocacy and enlightenment campaign ‘Na We Be Government” and decided to go back to music, his age-long passion to call citizens to participate in nation building.
