Charles Oputa, a seasoned performer better known by his stage name Charly Boy, has praised Nigerian youths for their restrained behavior during the ongoing demonstration in Abuja against the contentious presidential election results.
Recall that a number of demonstrations broke out in the nation's capital after Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, was named the victor of the February 25th presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
Atiku Abubakar of the PDP and Peter Obi of the Labour Party, the other two leading candidates in the election, both rejected the results.
As a result, their supporters demonstrated against Bola Tinubu's inauguration on May 29 in public.
Charly Boy expressed regret for not joining the protesters while praising the peacefulness of the demonstration.
He gave an explanation for why his health prevented him from attending.
The self-proclaimed Area Fada, however, promised to lead the “mother of all rallies” next week, revealing that he is recovering speedily.
In a tweet on Monday, Charly Boy wrote, “Courageous Youths, I appreciate you all for the peaceful way you’ve conducted yourselves in the Abuja ongoing rally so far."
But for my medical challenge, I would have been with you all.”
He added, However, I am recovering quickly, and hopefully by next week I should be joining you all for the mother of all rallies.
“They will never mess with our mandate."
