A group which identifies itself as the National Assembly, Stand up for Nigeria (SUN), has called for Bukola Saraki to step down as Senate president.
The group which has over 99 Civil Society Organizations, 70 freelance activists and 100 Non governmental organization (NGOs) says it has scheduled a 3 day rally at the Freedom Park in Lagos or Unity Fountain, Abuja next week.
They made this demand in a statement signed by the national president, Sunday Attah in Abuja, the press reports.
The group condemned the suspension of Senator Ali Ndume and insisted that the Senate carry out screening of RECs as it is their constitutional role that must be carried out.
According to the group, “The Stand Up 4 Nigeria (SUN) which is the ray of hope and light to our generation is therefore calling on all well meaning Nigerians to join us as we reclaim the Senate from Saraki and his boys and return it back to the people of Nigeria.
“We are also calling on those outside the seats of power to rise in their respective state capitals on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
“No individual entity or group of persons should ever take the Nigerian people for a ride any longer.”
It added that Nigerians will no longer be taken for a fool.
