News had reported last week Thursday that Nigerian singer and social crusader, Charles Oputa a.k.a Charly Boy, staged a mother of all rally tagged, "Our Mumu Don Do", which reportedly shutdown commercial activities in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

The AreaFada as he is popularly called by his army of fans on social media, have in the past, held multiple protests in Abuja and Lagos, aimed at sensitizing Nigerians on the importance of voter registration, as well as urging them to vote out corrupt leaders who don't have the interest of youths at heart.

In a statement made available to PoliticsNGR, the All Progressives Congress Youth Vanguard advised the legendaty musician, Charlyboy to desist from calling for the resignation of President Muhamamdu Buhari.

The statement signed by its leader, Collins Edwin, the group disclosed that president Buhari will not resign from being president and cautioned Charly boy to stop making 'senseless noise'.

Below is the Full statement;

"The planned protest against President Muhammadu Buhari by a coalition of civil society groups led by Charly Boy has come to the notice of the national leadership of APC Youths Renaissance.

"Ordinarily, we would have dismissed the move knowing that Charly Boy is an incurable attention-seeker, but because he cleverly laced his mercantile show-business in President Buhari's health challenge, we have decided to educate the political dissident that governance is not entertainment.

"President Buhari has just spent few days receiving medical attention and Charly Boy and his dubious sponsors are making senseless noise about it, what about a former American President who ruled America in the midst of greater health challenge yet Americans never gave a hoot about it.

"In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson suffered a severe stroke that left him incapacitated until the end of his presidency, yet Americans did not call for his resignation or impeachment, but here in Nigeria, we have a President who is only on a medical check-up and some group of attention-seekers are making it to look as if it is anathema.

"For Charly Boy and his sponsors to organise such protest against our darling President, we have resolved and are going to stage a counter protest that will show the world that President Muhammadu Buhari is truly loved by Nigerians despite the media gang up against him.

"We have also collected the comprehensive list of politicians within and outside the APC who are sponsoring the protest and negative publicity against Buhari and will make it public for Nigerians to see who and who is actually preventing good governance from happening in the country."
