PROTEST LOCATION DISCLAIMER
PROTEST LOCATION DISCLAIMER:
The attention of the leadership and members of Edo Civil Society Organisations have been drawn to a publication on protests taking place in different locations in Benin City by unknown author.
We want it on record that, we dissociate ourselves from the said protests taking place in different locations in Benin City. We are not unmindful of the current volatile state of our nation and the use of discretion in venting displeasure without giving room for hoodlums to hijack a genuine process.
Our protest is restricted to the office of NUPRC which was formally DPR. The agency saddled with the responsibility of regulating activities of filling stations and related matters. The peaceful protest by the organised civil society ONLY is to express our displeasure over the indifferent attitude by the agency as Edo people are being extorted and exploited by filling station operators.
To this end, we hereby dissociate ourselves from any protest purportedly taking place in any other location(s).
