Election: Charly Boy set to lead a mass protest
Charles Oputa, commonly known as Charly Boy, a veteran artist, has praised Nigerian youngsters for their peaceful conduct during the ongoing protest in Abuja over the dubious presidential election results.
Remember that the nation’s capital was rocked by a wave of protests when the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, announced Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the victor of the presidential election on February 25th.
The results were challenged by the other two major candidates in the election, Atiku Abubakar of the PDP and Peter Obi of the Labour Party.
As a result, their supporters came to the streets to protest President-elect Bola Tinubu’s inauguration on May 29.
While praising the protest’s peaceful tone, Charly Boy expressed sorrow for not joining the demonstrators.
He explained that he couldn’t go due to health issues.
The self-proclaimed Area Fada, however, promised to lead the “mother of all rallies” next week, revealing that he is recovering speedily.
In a tweet on Monday, Charly Boy wrote, “Courageous Youths, I appreciate you all for the peaceful way you’ve conducted yourselves in the Abuja ongoing rally so far.
But for my medical challenge I would have been with you all.”
He added, “However, am recovering quickly and hopefully by next week I should be joining you all for the mother of all rallies.
“They will never mess with our mandate.
