Outspoken Nigerian entertainer, Charles Oputa, known as Charly Boy, has challenged his colleague, Tuface Idibia, to lend his voice and join the clamour for better governance.
The Area FAda as he is fondly called, made the call in a new video he posted on his Instagram page, on Wednesday night.
His call comes after his suspension of his participation in the #ResumeOrResign protest, before which he and his group members were assaulted at Wuse market in Abuja.
The protesters demand the immediate resumption of President Buhari to office or his resignation.
2face had earlier planned the #IStandWithNigeriaprotest in February but withdrew in the last minute, due to police reports that hooligans were planning to hijack the protest. The protest however, was still carried out in major cities across the country.
In the video, Charly Boy said, “My guy 2face, I am not happy with you. Since I couldn’t reach you directly, I decided to reach you through this medium. Do you remember when you called on Nigerian youths to come out and protest? We obeyed because we thought you had a good intention to stand up to the injustices against the youths and masses of this country. But, as you retreated into a hole since then, I am very pained. If a beckon of hope like you can be lily-livered when people need you more, what is your problem?
“2face are you happy with the way Nigeria is headed? Are you saying you have not head about the resume or resign protest, why are you not involved?”
Meanwhile, 2face is yet to respond to Charly Boy’s comments.
Although, actor, Jim Iyke, unexpectedly joined the protests on Monday, Charly Boy still lamented the absence of his colleagues at the protest.
Area Fada also defended his decision to pull out from the protest indefinitely.
“This wasn’t an ethnic Protest, but they turned it so. It was a peaceful protest, but they made it violent. It wasn’t a personal attack on our sick President, but they twisted the matter. I called off the protest because I value the lives of the tenacious, consistence, dogged, rugged and focused exceptional Youths. We know the game and we will beat the modaf**kers at it. OurMumuDonDo,” he wrote on Instagram.
Meanwhile, the Presidency had on Wednesday reacted to the protests that happened at Wuse market in Abuja referring to it as ‘ethnicised’ and selfcentred.
It also condemned the #ResumeOrResigngroup led by Charly Boy, for taking the protests to a sensitive area like the Wuse market.
The protesters were assaulted by individuals believed to be supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari leading to injury to some including police officers who tried to maintain peace.
