Political activist and former presidential aide Reno Omokri has vowed to lead a protest against President Muhammadu Buhari in New York, the United States of America.
The protest which he tagged #HARASSBUHARIOUTOFNEWYORK is planned to hold on Friday, 24th September, the same day President Buhari is billed to address other world leaders at the ongoing United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
Omokri revealed on his social media platform that he has already flown into New York for the protest. He promised everyone that will join him in the protest a free customized T-shirt.
He accused the Nigerian president of begging for loans in New York and wants him to return home to fix the country’s economy.
The protest is billed for 12pm on Friday.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, Omokri wrote: “Just landed at New York for #HARASSBUHARIOUTOFNEWYORK. Still in the plane. Join me at Nigeria House at 12 noon on Friday, September 24, 2021. From there we will move to the UN Building.
“Everybody who joins me gets this cotton #HARASSBUHARIOUTOFNEWYORK T-shirt in Black or White.”

Naija News recalls President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday departed Nigeria for the United States to attend the United Nations General Assembly.
Buhari is scheduled to speak to world leaders during the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA76) in New York.
The UNGA session opened on Tuesday, September 14.
Apart from the UN meeting, the President will also hold some high-level meetings and interactions while in the United States.
Meanwhile, the leader of the Yoruba Nation agitators, Prof. Banji Akintoye, has accused the Muhammdu Buhari government of paying people to organize a counter-protest at the United Nations Headquarters on Friday.
Akintoye alleged that the Federal Government has paid some Nigerians in the United States to stage a Pro-Buhari protest opposite the UN Headquarters in New York, United States.
In a statement on Thursday by the spokesman of the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS), Maxwell Adeleye, each pro-Buhari protester was paid $500.
Akintoye stated that the grand finale of the “Million-Man Freedom March” scheduled for tomorrow will hold and all the crimes against being aided by the Buhari led government would be exposed.
He asserted that the agitators would not be intimidated by the antics of the Buhari government to call off the protest tomorrow.
