And They Had Campaign Rallies – Davido Blasts FCTA For Banning The #EndSARS Protests In Abuja
David Adeleke aka Davido, has lambasted the Federal Capital Territory Administration over its #EndSARS proclamation.
Davido slammed the FCTA for imposing a ban on #EndSARS protests in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
GISTMANIA earlier reported that the FCT Security Committee on Thursday attributed its decision to the alleged violation of COVID-19 protocol by the protesters.
The decision to proscribe all forms of protests in the nation’s capital was taken at a meeting chaired by the FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the COVID-19 guidelines regulating public gatherings recommend physical distancing, temperature checks, the use of facial coverings, amongst others.
“Clearly, all these guidelines were flouted by the protesters. Consequently, the committee directs that due to the dangers posed by COVID-19, all street demonstrations, protests and processions will not be allowed anywhere within the FCT,” it resolved.
However, the singer, who is one of the leading voices of the #EndSARS campaign and who had read the protesters’ demands to the IGP in his Abuja office earlier in the week, faulted the decision of the FCTA.
He noted that the Federal Government allowed electioneering and rallies to hold in Ondo and Edo States where cases of violation of COVID-19 protocol were recorded but was against protests in the same country.
Davido made this known on Twitter shortly after the announcement by the FCTA.
