Abuja indigenes protestMembers of the Gbayi community, Federal Capital Territory Abuja yesterday took to the streets in a march to the National Assembly in a peaceful protest provoked by non inclusion of an Abuja indigene in the ministerial list.

The residents and indigenes as well becry the fact  that President Buhari did not include any Abuja indigene in the recently submitted ministerial list submitted to the Senate. Leader of the group,  Ezekiel Balatu, said;

“We are here to say we have been marginalized beyond what we can bear. We can not sit down and people come from all over the country to rule us as ministers. So we should have a minister like every other state. Also, we need a second tier government that will cater for the needs of the indigenes. Why we are here is because we don‘t have our own House of Assembly. The National Assembly is our House of Assembly. It should not be. How can an Abaji resident reach Ask Rock Villa to complain. We should have a government that is closer to us, which is for the people and by the people. If our parents have endured this suffering for 39 years, we younger generation are saying no”
