”So on those questions about protests or no protest, I think it should be what is it that you want to do? So go ahead and do it, so let’s not keep looking for excuses.
There are people who are already doing their own thing. So if you want to protest, then go ahead and do it not that Peter Obi has to be the one to say this on the other one.”
