A coalition of civil society groups operating under the banner of Civil Society Coalition For Mandate Protection (CSC-MAP), has launched a global campaign aimed at curbing arms proliferation in Nigeria.

During a rally in Lagos Tuesday, the coalition emphasised that the “mass campaign” seeks to liberate Nigeria from the grip of terrorism and foster a nation that is free, prosperous, and resilient.

The coalition also condemned the persistent fuel scarcity across the country, attributing it to acts of sabotage, and urged the federal government to take decisive action to address the situation.

Members of the coalition took to the streets along Obafemi Awolowo Road in Ikeja, Lagos, displaying placards bearing different messages.

One of the coalition’s key demands is for each region to take responsibility for guarding their respective oil pipelines.

Comrade Popoola Ajayi, the secretary-general of the group, addressed the media during the rally, expressing concern over the prolonged fuel scarcity and blaming saboteurs for exacerbating the situation.

Ajayi highlighted the importance of security in the Niger Delta region for maintaining stability in the oil industry, stressing that events in the nine states comprising the Niger Delta have far-reaching implications for the entire nation.
