N-power: Why Monday 8th March is inconvenient for a National Protest

While the agitation of the N-power Beneficiaries to secure their future as bonafide citizens of Nigeria cannot be outrightly condemned, it is worthy of note that such should be conducted in Peace and in a manner that would be applauded by sensible and well meaning Nigerians.  

It has been widely published, the intention of the exited N-power Beneficiaries to once again take to the streets of Abuja and the streets of the Nigerian States on Monday 8th March, 2021 in clamour for a fair treatment bordering on the NEXIT Plan, unpaid Backlog Stipends, denied N-power Devices and more.

However, 8th March is a big day in Nigeria and the present Administration. 8th March is the birthday of Vice President Prof. Yemi Osibanjo, the "co Father" of the N-power Programme and a champion of the National Social Investment Programme.

His Excellency Prof. Yemi Osibanjo was born on 8th March, 1957 and will be celebrating his 64th birthday on Monday 8th March, 2021. The celebration will involve series of activities and many dignitaries to mark his birthday which will inevitably make Abuja a-no-go area for a Protest.

It will be demeaning to present a Protest as a birthday gift to His Excellency, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, GCON who in his utmost kindness and humane heart fought for the birth of the N-power Programme, transparency of the Programme under his watch and ensured the sustainability of the Programme while in his office.

Prof. Yemi Osibanjo's positive intentions for the Youths through the National Social Investment Programme (N-SIP), the National Economic Sustainability Plan (NESP), and many more should be rewarded and celebrated as he turns 64 come 8th March, 2021.
