Following the postponement of the proposed February 16th General Election,

Adeyemi emphasised that the association was fully mobilised for the protest and that any attempt to stop it will be opposed.
“This is a show of shame and disgrace of a country. Countries often learn from their mistakes but that is not the case with Nigeria”
Adeyemi warned that the sovereignty of Nigeria should not be toyed with by selfish leaders, adding that the unity of the country should not be frustrated.
He said that it was a shame and a bad signal to worldwide observers that the sincerity in the forthcoming elections was diminishing.
“The sovereignty of Nigeria should not be toyed with by any leader. Our forefathers fought for this; the unity of the nation should not be frustrated.
“Our position is that INEC chairman should resign. President Muhammadu Buhari should strengthen Nigeria’s security.
