Dino Melaye Plans Anti-Corruption Protests in UK, US
The Executive Secretary, Anti-Corruption Network, Mr. Dino Melaye, says the group plans to protest against Nigeria’s “lukewarm attitude” in the fight against corruption in the United States and in the United Kingdom.
Already, Melaye, a former House of Representatives member is overseas seeking the support of Nigerians in the Diaspora to participate in the protest.
He stated this just as he called for the sacking of some ministers indicted in different panels’ reports.
Melaye, in a statement on Tuesday, said he had submitted a letter seeking a permit for the protest.
He said, “Corruption in Nigeria is endemic, systemic and becoming contagious. If we want to rescue our country, we should stand up without fear or favour. We do not have any other country we can call our own apart from Nigeria. We must do everything to rescue this country from the hands of these economic cankerworms and financial scavengers.
“I was in London last week and now in New York. What we are doing is global networking to host an anti-corruption protest here in New York. We have served the government of America a letter to get their permission to organise a massive protest that will internationalise the corruption in Nigeria and help in fighting corruption.”
