United States Department of the Interior has granted permit to Nigerians in the United States to hold a protest over the February 25, 2023 presidential election.
The demonstration will take place on April 3, 2023, in Lafayette Park-Southwest Quadrant, United States.
The permission granted to the Nigerians in Diaspora to demonstrate against the February 25 election also followed a request asking the United States government not to recognise the new government to be sworn in on May 29, 2023.
The National Park Service, National Park Region, Washington DC, in a public gathering dated March 28, 2023, said: “In accordance with Park Regulations as contained in C F.R., Title 36, Chapter 1, Section 7.96, permission is granted to conduct a public gathering.
The United States government said the permit was granted subject to the conditions that permittee and all participants authorised therein must comply with all of the conditions of the permit and with all reasonable directions of the United States Park Police.
“All sidewalks, walkways, and roadways must remain unobstructed to allow for the reasonable use of these areas by pedestrians, vehicles and other park visitors,” the permit also read.
